Just wanted to let you know my first shoulder went great!!!!! I figured i would pass along the way i did it for anyon4e else who wants to smoke a shoulder but doesnt want to stay up all night to do it. I put them in Noon Saturday and poured heavy smoke to them for 5 hrs at 220 then backed the smoke off to a normal amount. Left them in for 12 hrs and pulled them at midnight. I foiled them and put them in the fridge, they were not done yet as the bone was still to tough to pull. I had to get some sleep as i had a group coming over on Sunday for a get together. I got up at 5:30 put them in the oven at 225 drip pans under them and got a couple more hours of sleep............i left them foiled at that temp for 5 hrs. They were INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!! everyone raved over the meat and it was so incredibly moist. I was nervous about foiling them putting them in fridge to continue in the morning but i will do it this way all the time just for time reasons!! Any questions id be happy to answer them. Have a great week!
