    We had some company coming for the weekend, and they requested some Q. I picked up a 9lb shoulder and three racks of BB's to smoke.

    I did the Chris Lilly injection and rub on the shoulder.
    Here is the shoulder after injection and rub:

    In the smoker:

    Outta the smoker and getting ready to be foiled:

    The shoulder was very was the first time I have injected one. It won't be the last! This thing had tons of flavor! I made up a Carolina red sauce from cider vinegar, ketchup, sugar, and red pepper flakes to go with the pulled pork.

    On to the ribs....I used the Apple City Ribs from the Smoke N Spice book. They are a bit sweet, but not cloyingly so. Everbody said they were great. I also made the Apple City Sauce to go with them. Great sauce too!

    Ribs all rubbed up and ready to smoke:

    After about 4 hours in the smoker. I glazed them twice with the Apple City sauce. :

    Man that looks awesome! Great looking color on the shoulder and the ribs. Looks like you done good!

    I'm not familiar with the "Chris Lilly injection and rub" -- is that something you found here on SMF? Looks like something I'd like to try.

    Great Qview! [​IMG]

    Ahh no.....That's one thing I need to work on. By the time I plate the food I have usually consumed a few adult beverages and forget all about pictures! [​IMG]

    I was searching on here for injection ideas, and I found a few references to the Chris Lilly rub. I just goggled it and found the rub and injection. It really is good eats!

    You bet. Here it is:

    For the pork shoulder rub
    1/4 cup dark brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup paprika
    1/3 cup garlic salt
    1/3 cup kosher salt
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon oregano leaves
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    Pork injection
    3/4 cup apple juice
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/4 cup salt
    2 tablespoons Worcestershire

    I'm looking forward to trying this on a few butts in the near future.
