I would say get a probe thermometer and stop guessing. Really.

Always get a bone in. Brine and smoke for an 1 1/4 per pound. With a great rub of course.

Typically 10-14 hours on a Boston Butt for me, I smoke at 225-250. Are you talking about a true picnic shoulder?

I've tried brining, to be honest I really didnt see the benefit. Mustard slater plus a good paprika based rub and you'll be fine.

Is your google broken?

You are looking to get to an internal temp of about 190 or so. Then, wrap that bitch in foil a few times and let it rest in a sealed ice chest for a couple of hours.

frick you buddy. You are on your computer or phone but couldn't get a ballpark? I bet you frick it up. No, I hope you frick it up.

You didn't give a weight or temp so you want us to guess? Just do yourself a favor and go buy something already cooked. Your guests will appreciate that.

He called me a dick because I suggested he use a probe thermometer and not guess.

I got mad. I'm sorry.

Well it was a dick response. He's looking for an estimate of how long to expect to keep it on. Does it take 4 hours to bring to temp? 8 hours? If you've never done one it's a legitimate question so you're not out there letting all the heat/smoke out every 20-30 minutes.

Without any info regarding temp or size of the shoulder you can't give an estimate.

re: how long to smoke a pork shoulder


If you are truely "smoking" the meat, then you are doing so at a very low temp and I would say 1hr/lb is a little low. Best advice is as others have said, use a meat thermometer and wait until you get an internal temp of 190.

Undercooked pork is not something to mess with.

Man I guess I'm a dick too, that was going to be my response as well. I always thought I was pretty nice guy, learn something new everyday.

Sure you can...
Cook it about an hour and 15 minutes per pound at a temp of 225 should get you about where you want it to be. It's done at an internal temp of 190. That wouldn't be considered an estimate without knowing anything?
That's how we roll on the F&D Board. You're only stupid on this board for liking Johnny's Pizza, putting crabmeat on steaks, and not liking Calvin's Chicken salad.

Then go ahead and make a guess based on time. I don't give a shite. I've dealt with the results from eating undercooked pork. I hope you enjoy.

that's not a dick response at all. It's just the way the thread almost immediately escalated into a "f u!!" "no, f u!!" type thread...
