    Bone-In Pork Shoulder Picnic

    This was my first picnic and first bone-in. 8 1/2 lbs

    Skinned it and trimmed off the fat, then oiled it, did a layer of Huskee's Rub and then a layer of Memphis Meat Dust. I wanted a little sweetness and a little savoriness and didn't want to figure out my own.

    About a day and a half in the garage fridge, so it was partially frozen. It went on the kettle with the Vortex at 36 internal. Did a 3x2 donut around the Vortex with 3 apple chunks along the way, and a water pan. Held a pretty steady 250ish all day despite the occasional wind & snow. 11+ hours later and we had a meteor - some really crunchy bark

    Nice! Textbook execution of that picnic. I love the simplicity and effectiveness that a vortex + fuse gives you.


      Great cook TB. Great color on that deal.


        Thanks guys. Wasn't sure what to expect as to differences with pork butt and boneless, but other than just a tad less fat, it seems the same to me.


          That's something I haven't tried. MMD+HRR. Let's call it Muskee's Rib Dust. Lol.

          How was the flavor, did it hit where you wanted?


            It did, although I could have seasoned it a little heavier. I've really been into bolder flavoring lately.


              If you like bold, and if you cook much chicken, try BBBR on chicken. Wowzers. Talk about Cajun-style chicken! I'm with you on big & bold for most things.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
