    We have some friend coming over for dinner tomorrow and wanted to treat them to some smoked pork [​IMG]. I did a small one last week, 3lb, with some SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce and it was sooo goood! So doing it again this week, only more of it [​IMG]. I have 12lbs worth in there.

    I trimmed out the two larger so they are were more similar in size, around 5lbs each, and tied up the extra trimmed pieces into a two pounder.

    Things are still in progress, here are some Q-view updates I took each time I opened to mop, figured why not snap a pic. I didn't start mopping until 2hrs in.

    Rubbed and injected night before.

    After 2hrs, mopped with apple juice. Internal temps on the larger two around 133, no reading on the smaller.

    After 3hrs, mopped with apple juice. Internal temps on the larger two around 143 and the smaller 155

    After 4hrs, mopped with the drippings in the catch pan (Combo of apple juice, rub and meat drippings). YUM [​IMG]! Internal temps on the larger two around 151 and the smaller 157.

    [​IMG]



    After 5 hrs, mopped again with pan drippings. Internal Temps at 153 on the larger and 158 on the smaller.

    Will add more as it goes...[​IMG].

    Thanks guys, still learning but getting better [​IMG]. They are some good friends who haven't really had much in the way of pork Q.

    Finished pulling it and added some of SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce. Hopefully, things will reheat well. Figuring to add a little more finishing sauce and a slow warm up in the microwave. Boy am I ever glad I found this site [​IMG].

    Finished and sauced. About 7lbs worth.

    LOL...can you tell I'm paranoid about dried out meat [​IMG]. Smoke ring was good, especially for my electric. I like seeing all those red bits in there.
