    Thanks John... I think bark comparison and taste of the different methods are good enough tests

    The only testing that I do is with my taste buds

    Not sure the porcine equivalent of Rocky Mountain Oysters.

    I love tests
    1. Major understatement
    2. You add another "e" by mistake into that word, and you got yourself another test to conduct

  • Pulled Pork Test #87 AKA Foil Vs. Butcher Paper This Weekend

    Somebody mentioned I should do this for a pork shoulder since Franklin did it for briskets, and I love tests so let's get this right. I have 2 shoulders from the same cryovac, so I can test one versus the other, or I can split them and do either 2 separate tests, or I can do:
    1 Foil
    1 Butcher
    1 Unwrapped
    1 ????

    Ideas for the ???? Not sure we need the unwrapped but I guess it would be a good comparison, just adds 4 hours. Wrapping doesn't save you 4 hours? Well you're living your life wrong, crank it up

    Oh and inject or no? Are the parameters just taste, or do I need to weigh these suckers and find if more moisture is lost etc.?
