    This past Sunday I wanted to cook a pack of Pork Shoulders that have been in my freezer for awhile. I took them out on Wednesday, and let them thaw out in the meat drawer in the fridge.


    I took the shoulders out late on Saturday, covered with mustard, then applied a very generous layer of rub


    Took out of fridge early Sunday morning, and injected with a mixture of Apple Cider, Apple Juice, Ginger Ale, Apple Cider Vinegar and Black Velvet. Threw them on the smoker with a handful of brown sugar topping off each.


    Here is the bigger of the 2. Both were boneless, and I had to tuck under to get some shape to them


    Here is the smaller of the 2


    This is my new hand pump sprayer for my hourly spritzings. I love it


    The surface temp (digital), and the barrel temp. These are growing further and further apart. Maybe need to clean analog one?


    Instead of traditional foiling, I poured my mixture into this foil pan with some Parkay and Honey, then covered/tented well w/ foil


    Here they are about to go back on (@165)


    Once they hit 200 degrees, I pulled them and put in microwave w/ a towel for 2 hours


    Here it is all pulled with the foiling juice poured back over

    Here is mine w/ some slaw

    How did the pan with parkay work out? Did the butter transfer to the pp? I never thought of butter but it sounds awesome. Gotta love this site

    In all honesty, i couldn't taste the ginger ale..I just saw it and thought it would add some flavor. I would do it again just because this PP turned out so tasty. The Black Velvet was a nice addition too
    It worked out great. It was just like foiling, except a lot easier. I figured I'd use the same thing to foil as I do w/ my ribs.

    Haha, Thanks, Not a new camera, but I do take my food Qview very seriously....NO CAMERA PHONES haha

    Thanks, Likewise

    How does that spray bottle work, with say, a liquid that has some rub in it? Does it clog up?

    Now that's one fine looking pan of pulled pork you have there Thunder. I really like that money shot it looks so good it could be my plate .......right..

    It's a pressurized sprayer w/ a hand pump. I think if you threw some rub in there, it would probably clog the misting tip. Unless the rub was completely dissolved
