10.5 lb shooulder and 2 racks spare ribs w/Qview

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

It's 4:30 AM here and I have the smoker warming up. Picked up an amazing looking 10.5 lb, bone-in shoulder from my butcher yesterday.

Covered it in rub yesterday afternoon and wrapped in foil. Smelled great when I unwrapped it this morning.

Will also be adding to racks of spare ribs later today too.

Pics here: will be updated later too.

I'm still not convinced the shoulder will be done in time for supper so that's what the ribs are for ... we'll see though!

Hopefully you will be able to get the pork off the smoker around 6. I started mine at 430 this morning. Min is only 9lbs. Good luck.

Nice looking cut of meat, especially all rubbed down and ready to go! Have a great time smoking that thing, it's pretty forgiving with temps and such.

Hope to see more qvue!

Hey everyone!

It looks like I was running a little bit hot this morning. I just ran out and grabbed a new thermometer. I had killed my old one last week, but though I had a sense of where I was at based on the one that came with the GOSM and based on my last few smokes. I figured I was running 200-225, but it looks like I was about 250-270... I've turned it down now... do you think it'll have a huge impact on the final product? I guess I shaved a little bit of time off in the long run icon_rolleyes.gif...

should be just fine. All that fat on the outside kinda protects the meat from getting dry, sorta bastes itself. Let us know how it works out.

Moving around the thermometer has lead me to believe that it wasn't as hot as originally thought ... all things considered, I think it'll work out okay... will let you all know.

Plateaus suck! It's been wavering around 163 for a couple of hours. It's been on the smoker for 15 1/2 hours now and I haven't even gotten to foil yet.

Can someone remind me to get a smaller one next time? PDT_Armataz_01_27.gif
