Hey all!

Below are pictures of the pork shoulder I smoked yesterday. It's the first smoke I've done since modifying my ECB, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you all so much for your help and advice!





This was a 4.75 lb shoulder that I smoked for 7-1/2 hours using applewood chips. The rub and mop sauce were from Backroads and Sidestreets by "Famous Dave" Anderson, and for the sauce I used the mustardy sauce from the cookbook The Complete Meat Cookbook by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly. Excellent eating, my best job yet!

legerdemain,
Looking good! Now with a white hamburger bun, some cole slaw, a few fries and an ice cold coke. Hmmmm.

Very nice indeed. :D

I smoked a couple of shoulders this weekend too. One took 14 hours to get to 185* and was very tender, the other cooked for 21 hours and was 195* before it got tender.

Bob-BQN,
The difference in time to complete is interesting. I have experienced similar differences in the cooking times and not really understood why. I know now that there are lots of variables and appreciate your mentioning the differences. You support my understanding of the basic pork butt. It just all depends on several things.
