Yesterday I smoked a shoulder and a few racks of ribs for some friends. Small (4.5 lb-er)shoulder - had it on for almost eactly 6 hours at between 200 and 225 degrees. Rubbed it Friday night and put it on around noon. sprayed it with Dr. Pepper every hour or so.
Ribs were on for about 4.5 hours or so. Rubbed them in the morning, refrigerated them for a few hours, then put them on. Smoked for 2.5 hours at 200-225, then wrapped them in foil with a couple cups of Dr Pepper/apple cider vinegar solution and put back in smoker for an hour, another 1/2 hour w/o the foil, then a last half hour with a light sauce/honey glaze.
Smoked them both with hickory. Shoulder was great -- ribs were awesome.
Any thoughts from anyone?
Anyone else busy this weekend?
