11:00 AM - Is it too late to start a 5 pounds picnic shoulder for a pulled pork diner?

I usually do overnight cooks when cooking pork shoulders but I never cooked a small piece of meat like this one...

    Go turbo and it should be ready in time for a meal this evening. Indirect at around 350 should get you there

    @hapster would you foil it after a few hours?

    even at 300* which ends up usually being around an hour per lb, you should be fine...IMO

    I don't think you'll need to foil

  • I've done several and they turn out fine.  You might consider injecting with some apple juice and cook at 325.  I like to foil and rest the meat before digging in

    Thanks everyone.  What was supposed to be a 15 minutes nap ended up as the full afternoon sleeping... The pulled pork will have to wait until tomorrow.  Tonight will be a rack of pork loin sous vide finished on the egg.

    For the 5 pounds pork shoulder tomorrow.  Should I expect a stall?  Will it be shorter or same duration as a 11-12 pounds shoulder?

    At turbo speed the stall does not get to play-you power thru it, thus the shortened cook-time, or so the turbo cooks express.  I'm sure they will be along shortly.

    I have done 10 pounders at 350 all the way thru with no foil and no stall Took about 7 hrs on the egg
