This is my first attempt at posting a Qview and my second attempted at smoking a shoulder. I hope it comes out ok. I started last night with an 8lb shoulder. I will be smoking it in my MES 1. I first trimmed the fat cap. 2. Injected with a mixture of apple juice, apple cider vinegar, chicken broth, and a little my rub. Covered with foil in a bowl and put it in the frig overnight. 3. Pre heated the smoker. While waiting for my MES to come up to heat I rubbed down with a thin layer of mustard and then a layer of my rub which is a modified made from Jeff's recipe and an apple rub recipe I found some where. 4. Got it going at about 6:30 am this morning. Started the smoke at about 225 degrees using 2 pcs. of charcoal and a hand full of apple dust. This is a picture after an hour in. The internal temperature was 99. I sprayed with a mixture of apple juice, apple cider vinegar, and a little rub. 5. Sprayed again 3 hours. The internal temperature was 137. I added a hand full of hickory chips. More to come later.
