Hey hey from orlando!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello, my name is Jeff. I'm a 19 year old student and l love to grill! I've been floating around checking forums every now and again and finally decided to just sign up! I got some big plans for an 8 pound pork shoulder (boston butt end) and i was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what kind of wood i should use! I was thinking about using hickory and apple wood together. I have cherry wood and jack daniel's oak chips available to me as well. Let me know what you guys think.

Welcome Jeff! I'm from Merritt Island, so I guess we're practically neighbors :)
Hickory and Cherry or Apple would be great for that Butt.
Make sure you smoke it all the way up to at least 195 degrees and you'll be good to go.
Let me know when it's getting close to being done and I'll bring the Beer :)

Howdy, welcome to the SMF!!
Any of the woods you mention would work great for pork. I like a mix of cherry & apple for smaller cuts like tenderloin and chops, the JD chips are also a fav.

I am an escapee from the stress capital of Florida. Pretty much spent most of my life there. Left Orlando/Winter Park around 9 years ago. Alot of that area has nice oaks, so don't discount them. My favorite mixture right now is Oak and Cherry.
Welcome aboard and enjoy your stay.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
