Hey y'all, This is my second attempt at a picnic shoulder and I must say, thanks to this forum it turned out amazingly!! Day 1: Rub, wrap, rest Day 2: Up at 4 am to start the MES 30 at 225*. I think I'll take it to 245 next time, this 8.4lb shoulder took 14 hours!! Scored the fat cap, put it fat up and let her rip with Apple wood. I couldn't locate my cooler, so I foiled it and tossed into the oven for 90 mins to rest. It pulled like a dream!! Clean bone, easy pull. Thanks for looking!
