I'm still fairly new at this and I'm about ready for second go with a pork shoulder. I'm kind of torn with this one because someone outside of my wife and I will eat this one. On the one hand I'm excited because, come on, I'm smoking meat. On the other, though, I want it to be good so I'm a bit nervous. Anyway, here's what it looks like now. I'm going to let the rub sit overnight and put it in the smoker in the morning. I figure my MES30 can work while I'm at work. Makes sense to me. I'll post "after" pics when I take it out. Wish me lick, please.
