Is it done yet? 
Deb, I got it (frozen) yesterday morning and put it straight in the freezer...
Couldn't decide when to do it... I was hoping Squirt could come over but he's busy - even next weekend
So, I went ahead and moved it to the fridge yesterday afternoon.
Been in there 24+ hours and it hasn't thawed much.
Might get it started tomorrow night (?)

Darn you Hal and CRG!  CRG, darn you for posting the website and darn you Hal for letting CRG take a pic of your pork shoulder.  I went out there just to take a peek and wind up with a brisket, 4 racks of St. Louis cut ribs and 2 petite butts landing at my front door next Friday! :D

I'll be real interested to hear how those STL spares come out!

Submerge it in the bath tub for 4 or 5 hours!

Yeah, a little pricey but I ain't got no kids to look out for or leave anything to.  Jan and I have both been blessed with good jobs all our lives and we are incredibly thankful.

Come on up on Saturday.  We'll fire up the MAK and see how Kurobuta ribs work!

If you're looking to adopt, I'll cut the grass just to be put into the will for that fine looking vehicle you just couldn't part with  ;D

OK...  Now, I'm starting to really look forward to this...
Memphis in May - this year - Pork Shoulder was won by Tuffy Stone on his Jambo Pit...
He used Berkshire (Kurobuta) pork from Snake River Farms!

“I have to thank Snake River Farms for providing us such unbelievable Kurobuta pork shoulders. It was our responsibility not to mess them up, that is how beautiful they were.” --Tuffy Stone
