100th Birthday Pork Shoulders
« on: July 20, 2010, 10:28:42 am »
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We had a big Family get together for my Grandmothers 100th Birthday on Sunday.
I was in charge of the "Smoke" for 21 people.

Yup, you guessed it....Pork Shoulders.


(2) 7 lb Boneless Shoulders from CostCo.




This is 22 hours after the "Rub of Love"



14 hours later w/ I.T. of 200*




Ready to be wrapped up for 2 Hrs of the F.T.C. method




It pulled like a dream and tasted even better. Killer Bark. Sorry, no after pics. They came out super blurry.


After pulling and saucing I baked up 3 dozen of these suckers. Peanut butter Chocolate Chip

You got an IT of 200 after 14 hours? What temp were you cooking at and on what shelf? I just did one butt about that size and it took 23 hours get have an IT of 190. I was cooking at 210 degs and on the second shelf from the top.

Those look good and Happy Birthday Grandma!

Thats exactly what and where i did it too.
2nd shelf down from the top. 
210* Cabinet temp. 
Dont know how cold it is where you are but it did actually dip down to the 50's that night too.  Smoked from 5:30pm to 7:30am.
I use a foil wrapped Fire Brick in the bottom of the cabinet to hold heat and help raise the temp back up after opening the door.

Wow! Is yours an OBS or BDS, single or dual element and do you control with a PID? I've read that every butt will get done on it's own time and this just shows it! Thanks!

PS I'm in N. Alabama and it's hot!

OBS. Single element. No PID.  Just keep an eye on my Door Temp probe (which is accurate) and a wireless, digital temp probe in the meat.

Happy birthday to your Grandmother. I can't imagine all the history she has experienced. From horse and buggy to space travel; photographs to 3-D movies. Wow!

Your pulled pork looks good.

Happy birthday, g-ma.  With the amount of red meat and pork we all enjoy I doubt any of us will be seeing a full century.

Nice butts.  I just ate one this past weekend and this has me craving more.

I think CRG has the right idea.  A sandwich made out of peanut butter/choco chip cookies and pulled pork (2 of my absolute favorites) can't be bad, right?  Wash it down with a Shiner Bock or Bell's Oberon and it's the best summer meal ever.
