    Hi All,

    I have been lurking around the site for a few months. My wife got me a WSM 18" for Christmas. Living in Pa, I didn't try my first smoke til Spring. I have done 2 full chickens twice with Jeff's rub with excellent results. Now I am ready for my first pulled pork. I will try to do a Qview, but I am more concerned about doing the smoke right vs. snapping off pictures. My first pork is going to be a 2 pack shoulder from Costco. Total weight is 12 lbs.

    Thanks Gary!

    The website and thread have been a great help so far. I would have been lost without it.

    Thanks Piney!

    I definitely will be using that one as well as the thread for Dutch's baked beans. May also try the finishing sauce, but a little worried about adding to much and making it mushy. Getting ready to put the rub on. Smoke will be starting at about 4am tomorrow for a 5p party. Two butts at roughly 6 lbs each (12 lb 2 pack)

    Thanks again

    Thanks Joe!

    I don't mind eating my mistakes, but the pressure is on for my first shoulder as there will be a party of 20+ awaiting the pulled pork and Dutch's beans. I hope I don't screw up , if I show up empty handed they might start throwing things

    Don't be in a rush. Let the meat tell you when its ready.You will do fine.

    Waiting for the results.

    Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans are awesome. I like to add the finishing sauce most of the time

    Thanks Larry and Piney

    I started a Qview on the pork forum. Prepped and ready for a 3-4am start! The WSM is loaded with lump and wood.
    I can't figure which one I will want to eat more, the pulled pork or Dutch's beans! Everybody seems to rave about them
