My name is Jamie and I am from Colorado. I just started smoking, and I recently bought a Trager for a smoker. I heard many good things about them, so I figured I would pick one up! So far, I have only smoked ribs, which was kind of a failure. I've been going off their booklet for advise. I was told forums were the best way to start, so here I am.
I am smoking a pork boneless picnic roast(I asked for porkbutt or shoulder, but he gave me that). I have it in a brine right now, and it weighs 3.835 pounds. Currently, the plan is to finish my brine by 12pm, then slap the rub on,(store bought rub as well). At 6am, I am going to throw it in. I'm really not sure how long it will take. I was told it should take 2 hours per pound, but for some reason that does not sound right. Also, I was told to foil the pork an half an hour to an hour before it finishes. Obviously, I've heard a million things and just picked what was the overall message. Please, let me know what ya'll think. Sorry, I am a rookie. Thanks
