    Smoking 3 pork shoulders. Each about 10lbs. One for home, one for daughters dance class pot luck and one for my neighbors. Picnic still has the shank and the skin. Kind of a pain in the ass but is $.89/lb.

    I skin the roast. Inject with apple juice and fish sauce. Dry brine with salt for 24hrs or so. Put the skin back on because I use it as a heat shield for the first 3/4's of the cook. I will be smoking this between 300-325 max. Then flip it and take the skin off.

    I will use a mix of cherry and apple chunks along with charcoal of course. Cooking at the higher temp I should have all 3 done in 7 or so hours.

    These are needed Sunday so not going on the smoke until tomorrow. Will try to update if I remember. :beer:

    The injection. With some granulated garlic.

    Next time I'm in San Diego. Usually there a few times a month. Still have a house in Oceanside I'm trying to get rid of.

    I didn't see how your roast came out the other day. Last pic I saw it was looking awesome? How long did it take?

    Was it dry? Where are all the delicious pork juices? I usually just put a pan under my pork collect all the juices and throw em back in or use down the road to make some kinda sauce. Pork fat= liquid gold!
