  • Vegas Slim,
    You may want to lower the salt content in your rub a little, if you would want to inject stay with low salt injection. Cook as you would normally, go by internal temp to gauge where you are in the cooking process. Once it hits about 185º internal start checking for tender. I would pull at aprox 195º internal if it feels tender.

  • Jim Minion, thank you so much i appreciate the help!
