    I picked up a pork shoulder today at Costco. Got it home and noticed it was boneless. Weight is around 6 1/2 lbs.

    I have a MES 30.

    Putting it on at 225 degrees

    Will it take longer without the bone or shorter to reach 205 for pulling?

    Thanks for any responses

    Time shouldn't change a huge amount being boneless vs bone-in

    For pulling bring the IT of the meat up to 200* F and it will pull,the bone takes more heat so you get a break on this one

    Never did a boneless butt before.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    I rubbed it down with mustard, rub and brown sugar last night. Wrapped it kept it in the fridge all night.

    530 this morning with a fresh cup of coffee, I fired up the MES 30 to 240. The apple chips started smoking and smelling up the neighborhood. Shoulder went on at 6 and we are off and running.
  6. I have done many of these from Costco, they have all been outstanding!  Yours will be too.

    Waiting is part of the game I'm in

  8. They always turn out great. I buy them all the time from Costco. I do prefer the bone in. Believe the pulled pork does come out a bit juicier. Because the bones expels moisture during cooking.
  9. How did it turn out? Any q-view?
