Inaugural Pork Shoulder

  1. I finally had the chance to fire up my MES 30" that I got for Christmas! I did a 7.85lb picnic shoulder with applewood smoke and a basic rub. It took about 14 hours at 225° but it was so worth the wait! I think I got a great bark and a decent smoke flavor to it.

    This was before it rested for 24hrs

    Here is 4 hours in, the time at which I put in the thermometer probe.

    Here is the result, 14 hours later. Hit a big stall around 166°

    It pulled amazingly well, it was moist and full of flavor! Thanks to all the SMF posts I read!

    For an inaugural smoke, I'd say success for sure!  It's hard to beat good pulled pork!
