Instructions

Method

    The Smoker/Grill

    • Place your water pan on one side of your grill and fill with water.
    • Pour your coals on the other side. You will need a mixture of hot and cold coals, so you get a slow and steady burn. Experiment with you grill and see what is best. With mine, I place them in a row and they slowly burn down the row.
    • Lay 2-3 pieces wood down the line of the hot and cold coals to ensure that you get a steady slow burn of smoke for the first few hours.

    The Rub

    • Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Make sure they are evenly mixed.
    • Trim off any loose fat and meat.
    • Cover the shoulder with the rub and rub it into the meat. Make sure it is
    • completely covered.

    The Smoking

    • Place the shoulder on the grill above the water tray and smoke.
    • After the internal temperature reaches 165° (2-3 hours), remove it, wrap it in a couple of pieces of foil so it is air tight and return it to the grill and smoke until the internal temperature reaches between 195° and 203° (another 2-3 hours.
