There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day
is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day
is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
First Pork Shoulder - 10 pounder, bone-in
Fired up the egg on Friday night for my first "real" pork shoulder. I did one small 4.5 pounder but this was much more intensive and a much bigger learning experience.
I went with a mix of cherry and pecan wood with Royal Oak lump and went in at 250-265* throughout the cook. I rubbed it down with JB's Cowgirl Rub
and mustard. My cook started a bit hot (around 300*) but settled down and went about 14 hours at 257*. Overall, a fun and successful cook!
