Pork Shoulder Success = Good bday for my kids.

I had purchased a cryovac of 2 boneless pork shoulders from my local Costco.  One of the shoulders weighed in at 8.5lbs and the other at 6.5lbs.  I put the big boy on at 6:30pm and waited 2.5 hours and put the small on at about 9pm.  I took each off about 11:30 and placed them in tin foil then wrapped in towels and put them in a cooler.  They stayed plenty warm until 2pm when I started pulling them.  The rub I used was a basic spice rub of garlic powder, kosher salt, cumin, and chili powder since the pork was used in tacos.  I served the pork with cilantro, onions, salsa, guac, sour cream, etc.  It was a great hit!

I tended the fire to ensure it was the right temperature a few times during the night, but mostly I checked when one of my kids woke up etc.  I am hoping for my bday in august I get a temp controller, lol.

Everyone at the party loved it and I can totally see why Green Eggs sell themselves; 3-4 people at the party asked me where to get one.  If I was a local dealer I would definitely be doing demonstration cooks.

    Glad all went well with the cook...and thanks for the great recipe idea. Never would have thought about doing Taco's. Did a simple cook yesterday...Brat's and Italian sausage with (peppers and onions cooked inside). Eggin' is tons of fun.

    I had done a pork shoulder about a month ago and with the left overs my wife and I made tacos.  Bday party was on Cinco De Mayo, so we figured let's do tacos!

    "Kid's" and grand kids came up yesterday to celebrate my Bday. Bday was on Cinco De Mayo but had to wait for the get know how it is when the kids and grandkids have a full schedule. Had a great day. Can't wait to do some "butt" taco's.
