I get a whole shoulder brined by the butcher, this started as a 21 lb. It was over 26 lbs after brined/pumped

Was awsome, used a mustard slather, apple juice,water and vinegar in the water pan. around half thie I started with a Honey/Molasses/brown sugar glaze. Took 16 1/2 hours @225*f to get to 165*f. And I used Pear/cherry wood for smoke

Hi Everyone, My name is Andy. I'm from Brunswick Ohio. I just built a Verticle Drum Smoker but in the cold Ohio winter I like to use my Verticle propane smoker for the long cooks. I get my shoulders from a local butcher that smokes hams. I order them as he says "pumped" . So I dont have to brine it. He does all that, I just work my magic in the smoker. I also have a offset Bullit smoker grill. I new to the list and still learning, any hints and tips are welcome. :cheers2:

Andy

Welcome Blueranger. Drop in the "C'mon In & Sit Down" forum and introduce yourself to the gang. They will be glad to see you. Take your shoes off. Sit a spell.

Gotta say that ham looks mighty fine. Good eats Maynard! And that smoker looks like it may have done a bit of smoking in it's time.
