First Pork Shoulder- Picnic

Discussion in 'Pork' started by austin, Jul 6, 2008.

  1. I put my first Pork Shoulder on this morning. It is a 2.89 kg (approx. 5.78lbs) bone in Picnic shoulder. I am following the sticky on the pulled pork thread.

    Last night I coated it in mustard
    Rubbed it with my rub:
    Brown sugar
    Garlic Powder
    Chili Powder
    Cumin
    Onion Powder
    Cheyanne Pepper

    I got it on my WSM at 9am.
    It is currently at 129F. I am spritzing it with a 3-1 mixture of Apple juice and Canadian Club (Rye) every hour.

    I plan to foil it at 165.
    Q-View to come.

    OK, that makes me feel a little better... I put my 6.5lb (2.9kg) on at 7AM MST. It heated up so fast that I thought that something must be wrong. It's currently at 140F. Outside doesn't look as charred as a lot of them that I've seen on people's QViews.

    Good luck :)
