Started this 20# bad boy around 7:00 Saturday morning. I stopped counting the hours around 10:00 last night :shock:. Unfortunately the skin had already been removed, but it still had a nice fat cap. Kept the temps around 240-250* the majority of the time and used some hickory and black cherry for smoke. Made some Piedmont style Carolina sauce to serve on the side.

Hey Matt. I got it at Fareway on Euclid. I think I might be incorrect about it being a shoulder. I was informed by someone this morning that it looks like a fresh ham..not a shoulder. Oh well, either way it was really tasty.

The salmon took about 1 hour to reach 140* internal. Has such a great flavor and is so moist on the drum!

Here is the Piedmont sauce I used.

Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue Sauces:

This is a non-typical, vinegar and ketchup-based
Piedmont mop (Lexington-style). Use on pork.

1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Makes about 2 cups

Combine all of the ingredients in a large nonreactive saucepan,
and blend well. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the
heat, and simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
This sauce will keep for several weeks in an airtight jar in
the refrigerator.

Hi Wayne. I didn't use an injection but wish I would have for something this large. It did get a little dry in spots. By looking at the size of my gutt, I don't think it will stop me from eating it! :rolleyes:

Thanks Pat, the Smoke and Spice recipe uses less ketchup and sugar and is not cooked. Will have to try this. I love the Carolina red sauce on Pulled pork and chicken:icon_bigsmil

I like to shoot the bigger pieces and for future reference, it works good to shoot them again while they are in the plateau.
