Pork shoulder

Hello all! I am new to this site and already LOVE IT! I am going to be smoking a shoulder on Saturday and was wondering if I can trust a .99 cent per pound pork shoulder blade roast from the local grocery store here in tucson to make pulled BBQ and I need some quick input! Thanks, and I hope to make some good friends on here.

It should work. I used something similar the first time I tried making pulled pork years ago.

Welcome to the SMF!  As long as it's pork it should make pork BBQ!  I guess a better cut would make better BBQ, but that's a guess on my part.  Post some QView (pics of your BBQ)!

Take care,

Wecome to SMF, I am a newbe here to, the blade roast is the upper portion of the front shoulder known as a boston butt and is very good pulled, some people cook to 180 degrees, Igo to 195 to 200 degrees then pull it will be very tender,  hope this helps u out

.99 lb pork shoulders is all that I ever use and they work everytime. I always buy them on sale and keep 2 or 3 in the freezer..Good luck and welcome to the fourm...Man I remember my first one and these guys walked me right through it and I was up all night.

One of things I love most about smoking is being able to use "cheap" meat and get such great food. I stock up on these and chuckies  - Can't believe how often they do 2 for 1's on those.  There are lots of tips in the pork section, along with rub ideas. I often brine mine, as well.  Have fun, Cheers!
