    With most of the hunting seasons over for me, I decided it was time for a good all day smoke. I aquired an 8 pound shoulder last night. Injected with a 50 / 50 mixture of Yoshida's and pure apple juice. Rubbed the spilled out mixture over the outside, and coated with a modified magic dust. Hit the MES this morning by 6:45. Water pan has beer, apple juice, apple vinager, and water in it. Put a drip pan under the roast with a bit of water, whole garlic cloves, and fresh cracked pepper to catch the drippings for later use. Planning on mopping with a 50 / 50 mix of yoshida's and beer.. Stay tuned.. This should be interesting.

    Meat at 141 now, Looking great. Used a few bits of lump coal and hickory for wood. Even on a snow day my neighbour has come over for a "meat inspection" due to the smells wafting around.

    I know when I did a pork loin with Yoshidas it was great, from the look of your pics I have no doubt it will be a tasty smoke.

    Ok guys and gals.. The results are in and this one is a KEEPER!!!! Now the flavor profile is not what I expected. I honestly expected since I injected it with Yoshida's and mopped with it, that I would get a fairly heavy Yoshida's flavor in the meat. The bark does have a great little sweetness to it. It was definate man candy! Ate my calories for the day just picking at bark. lol The meat was just awesome.. It was not sweet like I expected, but it was full of flavor that did not over ride the pork. I will be doing this again without a doubt.. Wife thinks it's one of my best yet. After tasting I changed my dinner plans from rice to salad and tortilla's. My mouth is still in that "damn that was good" feed me more mode.
