Boneless Pork Shoulder Advice

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum
So I wanted to do pulled pork for Sunday dinner and I picked up a 10 pound boneless pork shoulder from Costco. I really wanted to get a bone in one, time. Anyways when I went to put the rub and mustard on I was surprised to see that the shoulder was split in two and was sliced and diced pretty good. I put them both on my roasting rack and tried to stuff the little mangled pieces underneath the main portion. I'm guess now that my time will be way different as I was expecting to cook one 10 pound shoulder, but now I'm doing two 5 pounders. Plus, since their cut up I'd expect them to go even faster. Any suggestions on this one? Now I'm not even sure when to put these on the grill. I was going to start the 10 pounder around 8pm so I could bank a few hours to rest in the cooler.

    What cook temp? At 250 they will probably take between 7 and 9 hours but that's just an estimate. Cook them to 200 internal in the fattest part. Sounds like you just have extra area for bark. Should be great. Good luck.
    Since I am from the South, I assume when you say dinner you mean Sunday lunch. If you mean supper, you can cook them during the day tomorrow.

    We are doing supper Sunday, so I'll just get up early and put them on. Hopefully they'll have time to rest a bit but not the end of the world if not.

    Costco sells shoulder in 2 packs, and they are boneless. I like the bone in butts, but truth be told, I can't really taste a difference in the end product.

    They did turn out great and took about 9 hours. I will definitely buy the costco shoulders again. Thanks for the advice.
