Started a smoke last night for a pulled pork dinner. I am looking for a 202-205 degree target temp.
I got a Pork Shoulder 8.39lbs @ $1.34/pound
I rubbed it down with a Bassi BBQ rub I make and decided to smoke on apple chips.
35 degrees outside
Smoker set to 225
7:30PM - smoker started, apple chips added
8:00PM – Picnic Roast place in the smoker, at 225 degrees
8:30PM – Added apple chips.
9:30PM – Added apple chips.
10:30PM – Added apple chips.
2:45 AM – Temp Alarm went off, smoker temp at 199 degrees. Smoker was off. Unplugged the smoker and plugged it back to regain power. I think the extension cord is not making a proper connection.
9:00 AM – Insert the temp probe. Internal temperature 178 degrees
10:00 AM – Internal temperature 185 degrees
11:00 AM – Internal temperature 189 IT
I'll post some pics of the finished roast.
