    Need help

    I over slept my pork shoulder in time by a few hours I need to rush my cook any ideas and tricks would be fantastic guys Thanks have have great cooks this weekend!!!

    after a few hours of smoke you could bump the temp up to 275-300°


      Yep, increase your temps after you get some smoke on it for a few hours. Try not to spritz as that will add time onto the cook. After your bark is set, a foil wrap will speed the cook up as well.


        When does bark set I don't wrap often so what temp are you thinking


          I usually wait until after the stall. But as you need to push this along, I'd wrap as soon as you like the exterior color. I put my butts in a foil pan with a little liquid (apple juice) and cover in foil. At this point you could even put it in the over to finish.
          Good luck!


            And, after the stall & proper smoke there is always the oven & let er rip!


              "You can crank up the heat if you are running behind. Butt can handle it. Butts are very forgiving so temp control is not crucial. The bark might get a bit dry, there might be a little more shrinkage than usual, it might be slightly more chewy, but it will still be delicious. If you kick the temp up to about 275°F(135°C), you can cut cooking time by 2 to 4 hours. If you use the Texas Crutch at about 150°F(65°C) you can cut another 2 hours or so off cooking time."--amazingribs.com

                Cut the butt into smaller pieces or into strips as in country-style pork ribs. They will cook faster.
