    Seriously Big Texan? Are you cooking on an Egg?

    A water pan?

    225º for 8 or 9 hours?

    Mop every hour or two?

    Come on.

    Sundown - Not sure what was wrong with his post. I spray my shoulders every hour and use a water pan also. The water pan is so the drippings dont burn up and then I use the drippings as the base for my sauce. The time seems a little short for a 8-10 pound shoulder but it also sounds like he is cooking a picnic shoulder versus the butt so it may cook faster than the butts I cook.
