Shoulder with Mustard Rub - Q-view to come

Discussion in 'Pork' started by va_connoisseur, Aug 24, 2008.

  1. Well, I decided to give a mustard slathered shoulder a ride on the vertical smoker. She has been going for about 2 hours now, Smoker holding in at 250 and the meat is around 93 degrees.

    Q view to come at the 3 hour mark.

    Got one on also. Fat cap down for me, how about you?
     
  5. Yep. Fat cap down until I foil it, she is climbing steady and now is at 132. Going to spray in about 20 minutes

    Well, I have 64º after one hour, so a long way to go.
    I usually leave fat cap down, seems to keep the bark better when foiling.
    I have a mixture of Makers Mark and Apple Cidar Vinegar which I will start spritzing after the two hour mark. Have a good smoke!!!
    This is our first dry, no rain day in 4 days.

    Nice stuff man.

    What is the norm, fat up or down? Benefits if each?

    I usually put the fat on the bottom as well.
     
  9. Is that an issue?



    I may let it roll up to 170 degrees before I foil it.

    nope not an issue...she may just sit there awhile or not...looks great though...
     
  11. Hmmm...ok. Used to separate thermometers and after only 7 hours at 240-270 my 6+ pound shoulder hit a temp of 200...I let it level there for about 45 minutes and now she is covered an in the cool.

    Going to let it sit for aleast 90 minutes
