    1st Pork Shoulder on the Weber/Smokinator

    Started with 12.95 lb boneless pork shoulder from Costco:

    Opened up, it fell nicely into two halves, which I tied (not beautifully) and dry brined for about 12 hours overnight:

    Oiled and rubbed with Memphis Dust:

    Then onto the Weber at 235°. (Used apple, some hickory bits I had left laying around, and later some oak flooring when I was trying tp get temps up quick):

    It ran pretty good for the first 5 hours between 225-250° with some spikes that I allowed, but then the rain got stronger and I had trouble keeping the temp at much more than 225°. Still, they ran through to 170ish before the first stall and that was a short one. Then at about 8 hours they stalled at 190° and would not budge for anything. We had already bought movie tickets online so after giving them plenty of opportunity to push through, I put them in a large foil pan and into a 200 ° oven.

    They sat in the oven for about 3 hours. Took them out when I got home and they passed the fork test, so I pulled them with the bear claws.

    Tastes as good as it looks. I think we'll be having pulled pork tacos tomorrow night. GF, who likes bacon & ribs, but has never had pulled pork, decided it smelled so good she'd join us. Then I'll finally open my FoodSaver and parse out some freezer bags of this stuff.

    Never would've happened if not for MH, AR and The Pitmaster's Club.

      Thanks! And nope - 22.5" - Performer Silver. Really happy I went with it instead of the OTG - the lid rest, the side table and the bottom rack all come in really handy.

        I particularly appreciate that second stall observation as I am there right now. I will bump the Yoder to 250 to see if that pushes it over the edge... we might should have crutched these!
