I had a "picnic cut" shoulder to smoke and my mother in law asked me to smoke a butt, so I decided to do them both at the same time. I hadn't attempted to do a any shoulders sections yet so I, once again, relied on my smoking friends here for advice. It turned out spectacular! Thank you all for posting your pics and advice/tips! SMF is such a great place! Here is my Q-view: Gimme some rubbin': All rubbed up and ready to soak up that wonderful applewood smoke: After approximately 11 hours of salivating it was ready to come out: MMMMMMMMMM.... I can't wait to do more! I did brine in applejuice, brown sugar and kosher salt the night before, and rubbed with Jeff's rub. This was mated with Granny's potato salad and sister in law's pumpkin roll for dinner. Let's just say there were some happy stomachs afterward!
