Just got my BGE as a birthday gift and I'm tickeled to death.
Fixin to smoke my first picnic (deboned shoulder) which was tied up with string.
The first thing I did was cut off the string, open it up and liberally put rub inside and out. Before I put on the BGE, should I re-tie it up or just kind of fold it up or let it lay out??

    Tie it back up. It will cook much better as a mass.
    I did one of these and it was pretty good, but not as good as the bone-in ones. The advantage is the flavor from your spices is deep inside![p]Have fun.

Pull off when internal is 185 or so. The boneless versons seem to have less tolerance of taking it to 200. Maybe because the looseness of the meat-in-a-sack allows more moisture loss.[p]It will be good! BTW welcome to the group!!
