Lamb shoulder barbacoa

Mr_EggMr_Egg Posts: 13
First cook on the egg today Whole lamb shoulder marinated with a wet rub of chipotle adobado, oregano, thyme, onion, garlic, vinegar On at 11am and tried to regulate the temp at 250 will leave till about 6pm - then rest - eating in tacos, salsa verde and guacamole Question is ....... If I'm doing in a conventional oven this would work fine at this temp as typically would put in pan and seal with foil ( not a braise just covered) At this temp am I fine for this length of cook? What internal temp am I aiming for with lamb? Shoulder has a high fat content so ideal for long slow cook? Cheers eggers Mr Egg

    I think you'll be looking for about 200.  I tried this with a lamb  shoulder a few weeks back - braised at about 275-300.  Unfortunately, I only took it to 165, which wasn't tender enough. Tasted good though and I learned something for next time!
