First off sorry for how long this post will be. I have an ok joe highlander. Traded up from an ECB. I have used it quite a few times and love it! I have a 6.9 lb pork shoulder that I am going to smoke wednesday plan on rubbing it tomorrow and possibly injection letting it sit over night. I want to run my smoker at 250 but I'm honeslty not sure when I should start the smoker on wednesday. (I want to make sure it is done in time for hubbys birthday dinner.) Do I go by 1.5 hours per pound? (As a starting guide?) More time? Less time? I know it isn't done till its done. Aiming for 200ish it temp. Will be using a finishing sauce. Going to smoke it in an aluminum pan. And the abt.. I have my game plan pretty much planned out for them seeing as they will most likely be devoured for lunch and never make the dinner table I am going to smoke them early but I have never done them. Will 250 be sufficient enough to cook them? How will I tell they are done? Sorry for the long post just want to make sure hubbys birthday dinner is fantastic.
