Hey fellas, Been using this forum for a while now, but finally decided to join up and start posting. Went to a local butcher and picked up a whole shoulder 18.5 lbs or so, and a big box of beer, and figured I would try to cook something tonight. After reading a few threads here, I decided to cut this bad boy in half. I'm guessing that makes 9 lb Boston butt, and 9 lb picnic roast? Anyway, here it is. I threw it in a simple brine just for the hell of it, salt, pineapple, brown sugar, garlic, etc. Now I'm thinking about cooking it overnight.
