    looking forward to seeing your qview. Don't forget to tell us about your smoker and toys and tricks. I'm doing a 5lb Shoulder tomorrow myself, so there will be lots of Thin Bue Smoke in the air.

    I figured on at least 13 hours+. I'll be sure to share the details. I'm having a blast, all though I think I'm driving my wife crazy. The pork is wrapped and waiting on the AM. Looks like an early morning.

    I think I'm driving mine crazy also. But once she gets a taste of smokey moist bite of goodness......... Not so crazy..

    Just gave it another mop. Looks good. I figured I would check the temp around 8 hours. Any thoughts on changing a mop recipe halfway through? I was pondering the concept, but it almost seemed detrimental to the end product. I would hate to ruin the butt!

    I don't mop mine, but I am going to foil mine up and give it a good drink of apple juice and some secret spices

    Stuck with the original mop. The thing is looking spectacular, and smelling the same the same.

    13 and a half hours. Had a hard time getting it out but it was worth it. Outstanding!

    Flavor is awesome! Smoked in a Brinkman electric smoker. Roughly 13 and a half hours.
