    Thanks for taking the time to share as always.

    I'm very interested to know how the quicker cook goes. 350° seems a bit warm but if it works, woohoo!! Hope there are some pix to show!!
  • jeffinsgfjeffinsgf Posts: 1,259
    Two hours in.

    I've done it about a dozen times, BB, always to rave reviews. Started and finished pulled pork at the Springfield Eggfest last year. Every Egger that tasted it wanted the recipe.

    Four hours in. In the plateau at 170

    You would be wise to quit opening the lid so much...as the saying goes..if you're lookin, you aint cookin...keep all that heat inside the egg... :)
  • jeffinsgfjeffinsgf Posts: 1,259
    I got heat to spare, Wess. No worries with opening the dome. I'm pretty sure this 8 pounder is going to be done in 6 hours...maybe 7. Dome is between 325 and 350.

    Six hours in. Veggies have made their contribution and have been removed from the pan. Vee-rack added to get a little bark formation on the fat cap side. Internal temp is 180.

    Sounds wonderful. Can't wait to try it. What is the smallest shoulder you've done this way?
  • jeffinsgfjeffinsgf Posts: 1,259
    Six pounds. Done in about 4-1/2 hours.

    This sounds (and looks) really good! Love the quick cook too. Will have to give it a try!

    Hi Jeff,

    Looking good on that cook!

    Are you able to get a good deep smoke flavor doing it this way?
  • jeffinsgfjeffinsgf Posts: 1,259
    Yep. Finished pics coming up soon.
  • jeffinsgfjeffinsgf Posts: 1,259
    On just before 9, off just before 5. Turned over for fat cap up for the last hour. This is it just before getting wrapped and going in the cooler.

    Friends just headed for home. All four of us are waddling around, still stuffed 3-1/2 hours after dinner. The pork was wonderful. Here's the final pic before we descended like vultures.
