Early morning Pork Shoulder (Pics)

Got a 8lb bone in pork shoulder. Rubbed it with Bad Byron's, then a layer of mustard, then another layer of bad byrons. In the fridge for 24 hours. Pulled it and on this AM at 8am. Got the Maverick running shooting for 250 grate temp. Settled in around 259 or so. Apple chunks for smoke. Also mixed in some AMS apple pellets through the lump. Made some of my homemade Carolina vinegar sauce--- simmered for 10 minutes, then cooled, and in the fridge until dinner. After 6 hours, butt in the stall at 176IT, grate temp at 266*. Planning to eat around 7-8 tonight. Will be accompanied with fresh green beans and slow cooker mac n cheese. Will post more pics as I go.

    No, it won't even go through with the traditional camera to laptop I have been doing for a few years. Forum gave me some security crap. Saw others were having same issues today.

  • Save some for me, looks good.
  • Ha just kidding man. Looking good!!

    I was not just crazy about my turbo no foil butt from the weekend. Thinking ether lower temp or the foil step is needed.

    In 8.5 hours and at 192IT. Grate temp has been between 250-275 the whole time. Fluctuated when I opened the dome 3 times to mist with cider vinegar and apple juice. Pics to come.

    @MCN, I have never foiled one time during the cook and always get a moist result. I think it is the higher temp that dries it out. Pulled this one at 5:15pm and it was 197*. This is the highest temp i have ever cooked one (300 dome and 250-275 grate) so will let you know if the higher temp dries it at all. FTC until 7:00. Looks fantastic. Pics after pull.

    I liked the apple pellets but honestly couldn't tell a difference because I used chunks too. The butt was smoking for a handful of hours but not sure if it was a result of the pellets or mixed in chunks.
