    That article got me to buy a pork shoulder butt,
    a bag of Trader Joe's charcoal, and a bag of hickory chips.
    The butt has been rubbed and is sitting in the refrigerator
    right now. I'll start the BBQ early tomorrow morning.

    I'm already set for tomorrow but I think I'll do this next week.

    Pretty basic barbecue 101 information that hits the right notes. I disagree
    with using foil since it will create a 'steamed' flavor to pork that is more
    akin to kalua pork than bbq pork. Overall, not a bad summary.

    I have three 15-pound shoulders and two 20 pound briskets going on the pit
    at around 4:00 am tomorrow. I won't rub them until an hour before they go on
    the pit, when the meat gets pulled from the frig to warm up a bit toward
    room temperature. I'm using apple wood with some lump charcoal.

    About when will they be done? How long will they rest
    before pulling apart? Those are really big ones. I guess
    they will come out better because they will cook for
    a much longer period than my heavily trimmed boneless
    2 1/2 pound shoulder butt. I plan to start early,
    but be finished by lunch or the early afternoon.

    I have a book which shows how to improvise a BBQ
    using cinder blocks, which they show being used
    to BBQ entire sides of beef. I once picked up some
    oven racks on a day when people were putting out junk
    for pickup. I've always planned to someday use them
    to make one of those BBQ's, but much smaller than the
    one in the book.

    Essentially all of the pulled pork I've ever had in the southern
    U.S. had this over-steamed thing going on, as though it was
    made by a deliberately wet method. Not my thing at all.

    Not a meat smoker either, but for us newbies, this was a good tip if it's
    true. Seems right to me just thinking about what is going on.

    "Allow 1.5 to 2 hours per pound but it might take more or less. Each hunk of
    meat is different, and rain, wind, ambient temp will impact cooking times.
    The temp will rise steadily to about 140 to 150F. and slow down for a
    looooonnnng while as moisture moves to the surface and the collagens turn to
    liquid. It might hold there for an hour or more. This is called "the stall"
    or "the zone". Don't panic and don't crank the heat. Be patient. Magic is
    happening."

    or pulled pork from Joe's, not Moe's.

    I didn't say I've never had good pulled pork, just most of what
    I've had in the south (which spans perhaps a dozen or 15 occasions)
    was not to my liking, due to its wet-method approach.

    I'm excluding Texas from "the south" in this particular case.

    Something like that.

    No, I mean a high humidity in the BBQ oven rather than a lower
    humidity.

    In the extreme case, the meat almost seems braised rather than BBQ'ed.
    At the other extreme, it is quite dry but still tender (due
    to the breakdown of connective tissue). Texas BBQ, in my experience,
    tends towards the dry end of things.

    I belive the higher humidity is what Dave Bugg was alluding to
    when he talked about foil-wrapping methods.

    Quitting smoking is a bitch.
    Along the lines of giving up real food! <g>

    And I don't really mean that as a joke...

    And I've also never been a smoker!

    Cheryl - If you need a quit pal, I'm your guy. I smoked for over 30
    years, and only quit at the end of 2007.

    I have no issue with supporting your efforts to quit.

    ------------------------------------------
    Have never used any drugs except nicotine & alcohol.

    I'm convinced that nicotine is the most insidious, addictive drug on
    the planet.

    I started smoking by stealing cigarettes from my dad when I was 7.

    Needless to say, when caught, I didn't sit down for a while.

    Started again when in high school.

    Since that time have quit twice, both times "cold turkey", the last
    time was January 1978.

    Quitting is the most difficult thing I've ever done, and so it will be
    for you.

    I'm convinced that if you are serious, the only way is that one day
    you look yourself in the mirror and make the deal with yourself.

    No fanfare, no announcement to the world, just a deal with yourself
    with the goal of making it another hour, another half day, another
    day, another week, another month, without a smoke, or whatever it
    takes to get the monkey off your back.

    It's been over 30 years since I quit, but I accept the fact that as
    much as I hate the smell of burning tobacco, if I were to take a puff
    of a cigarette/cigar/pipe, I would probably start smoking again.

    It's the life of a recovering nicotine addict.

    BTW, I can detect some one smoking across the street and it STINKS.

    Good luck.

    You can make it, IF YOU WANT TO.

    Lew
