Well I took everyone's advice but Timbo's in the pork shoulder thread, And I've started my pork shoulders on the smoker at 12pm today, It's windy 2 72 degrees's
,

Used the minion method the correct way with my guru.

And here's the pron.


The pan.

Looking good so far! I've never seen anyone score the butt like that. Anyone else here do that? May have to try it this weekend. :)

I was wondering the same thing and what was the reasoning for removing the fat cap? Also, are those 15 lbs. of butts total or each? I've never seen one bigger than 10 lbs. other than maybe Hogzilla!:biggrin:

guess he should have listened to Timbo afterall... whomever that is :confused:

scoring makes for a cool looking checkerboard pattern if you score the fat cap.. that's about all it does.

Pulled about 4 hours ago's and these are 8 & 5 pounders I think that make up 15 pounds.
The test sandwich with toppings I like, like onions, sweet ancient peppers, and green bell peppers.
