Afternoon all. I've got the week off and am going to try something that has kind of intimidated me for a while...Boston Butt.
Going to get the 4.77lb beast dressed this evening/cooked tomorrow.
Planning on injecting - no particular reason, just want to try my hand at it. I have some fresh chicken stock and apple cider in the fridge. Would it be gross to mix the two for an injection solution?
Also - indirect cook, right?
And at 5 pounds, I should plan on a 10 hour cook? That's (obviously) 2 hours per pound?
And should the meat go in the cooker straight out of the icebox, or should it be allowed to get to room temp first?
