Default Cookin Myron Mixon's Pork Shoulder

I am going to make Myron Mixon's pork shoulder from his Smokin book this weekend. I have the injection, Vinegar sauce, and rub made, and am planning on making the glaze after putting the pig to the heat.

What is the overall opinion of this combination for making BBQ, I think the sauce, injection, and rub all tasted pretty good by themselves,so lets hear about what you thought

Good luck! I have read his book also. Trying to learn as much as I can. I did his apple/bacon stuffed chicken breasts. Pretty easy and family loved it.


Sorry not trying to hijack your thread. Good luck and post up your results.

I enjoyed his book but I did his rib recipe and it was WAY, WAY too salty! (and I like lots of salt)

Me too. But that's becuase you have an early copy of the book with errors in it.

I agree on the salt issue. My copy of the book (V3.1 R2) shows 2 cups of salt in the hog injection which I think is a little much in 5 quarts of liquid. The book has some good recipes, but I use them as building blocks to create my own style at times.

You have to use some common sense and your own taste when using MM's book. I like his rub recipe. His comp brisket and pork butt recipe differs slightly from the recipe in his book. But, either way, use your own sense of taste with them. I have a later version of his book and many of the salt issues have been addressed in it. But, I still use my own taste when following his recipes.

Good luck!

For MM's brisket, think Arby's roast beef.

I didn't post that, BTW.

Where did you see the version #? Anyone have a "revised" edition with the "right" salt content. I've got the book that shows 2 cups salt in the hog injection. Never tried it, but probably will sometime for butts.

My version of the book shows 2 cups salt in it as well. I've made it several times and never noticed the pork ending up too salty.

I made his recipe a few times...I adjusted after the first time...too much onion powder and pepper in the rub for me. I made the glaze once...it wasn't bad just didn't seem to need it flavor wise...for a comp I could see where it would make sense though.

He said at his class the 2 cups was a typo error. Try 2 Tablespoons
