So last night i decided i wanted to pull some pork for tonight's dinner. the last attempt i had at this i could not get the temp of the pork up to 200+ degrees. i was only able to get it to 185 and it only set for 30 mins due to me being new to the smoking world and starting late in the morning. i believe i started the smoke at 10am the last time. So last night i rubbed my pork with some mustard and my favorite rub then wrapped it in some plastic wrap and let it set until this morning. Here is a pic of the Shoulder before i threw her into the smoke:
Looks good already! i put it in my smoker at 0630 this morning, and began smoking it with hickory. it has now been in the smoker for about 3.5 hours and is at an internal temp of 140. im trying to keep the temp of the smoker around 225-240, so it should be good. here is a current pic of this beautiful piece of meat:
Already lookin good and the neighbors are flocking around trying to figure out where the aroma of smoke is coming from. lol. i will be putting it into foil around 160-165.
My plans for dinner are as follows: pull the pork and place in hawaiian sweet bread with a dallop of coleslaw on top. add sum sweet potato french fries into the equation and it will be a great hit with my Girlfriend. i will keep posting pics as i go and definately will not miss the "Money Shot!" picture.
I Love me some smoked food!
