Tips for first pork shoulder?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Well just left the butcher. Ended up with a 9lb pork shoulder. It will be my first one, but pretty excited for some pulled pork. I'll be using a Yoder YS480. I'm guessing I should take it right to around 200-205 for pulling? Should I just use a basic pork rub? Seems some people wrap, some don't. Also, should I put it straight on the racks, or in a tin pan?

I would keep it simple for your first smoke. Use a basic rub, smoke at 225 to an IT of 200-205, and don't wrap. That way you have a base line to go from to start changing your method to fine tune it to your taste.

 

Good luck.
