1st Time for Pork Shoulder

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting a smoker for a few years and recently decided to go ahead and get one. I've always loved grilling but wanted to always smoke low and slow. I got a Pitboss pellet smoker. I've done a pork loin, baby backs, and yesterday some wings. Well I decided it was time for a pork butt. Went yesterday morning and picked one up. Got it home and applied the dry rub. Started the smoker at 11:30 last night and put it on about midnight. I figured it would take until about noon today since it was 8 pounds. I got up this morning and went and checked it. It was a lot closer to done than I expected. At 9:00 A.M. it had reached 193. I took it off, wrapped it in foil and a towel and put it in the cooler. We went to church and got home about 12:30 and I pulled it. It tastes great!!! I'm loving this low and slow smoking and new hobby!!!

Looking good..... Point...

 You won't regret the Pit Boss. I just bought one this spring after using a friends traeger at work over the last couple yrs. Best Q purchase ever, I ended up picking up a used one from a guy that smokes for his food truck ( he upgraded to a large commercial one) so Now I have one for home and one for work...... I can't complain....

Nice job! Kind of hard to focus on the sermon when you've got a pb waiting at home!

I sure do like this one. I noticed today at walmart here that they had their camp chef smokepros on clearance for $250. Looked like a pretty decent smoker for the money
