This was absolutely 100% excellent, I have smoked only beef in my H2O smoker like brisket and beef ribs, I wanted to try pork. The 10 LB pork shoulder I used was for easter, I smoked it at 215-225 F for 4 hours then tented it and put it in the oven for 6 hours at 225 F. I used calamansi juice in the injection instead of apple juice and re-injected in the large muscle parts just before putting it in the oven, I also swapped the amount of brown sugar and white sugar to give the meat a better crust.
This it one I will use again and again, THANKS ;)
I have a cookbook with this recipe and it is indeed as the last reviewer stated Chris Lilly's recipe. This recipe is great and I would advise anyone who love real barbecue to take the time to try it. It takes alot of time and love but is well worth it. Chris Lilly has won alot of competitions for best pork shoulder with this recipe. The book I have is "PEACE LOVE AND BARBECUE" by Mike Mills another BBQ champ. I love to smoke meat and this book will be a great addition to anyone who knows how to BBQ or wants to learn. There is alot of secret recipes and is a very good read. Thank you KITTENCAL for posting this recipe it is a good one.
We did this recipe for Memorial Day. We had a 10lbs pork shoulder and it was beautiful. I did take the skin off but left as much of the fat cap as possible. We did the rub and then injected the shoulder with the liquid. We have a large bbq slow cooker. It's just for doing large thing like this or a huge amount of ribs. Anyway we put the roast in to the slow cooker for about 12-14hrs and then left it to cool while we did something else for the meal. When we took the shoulder out it was so moist and tender I could pull it apart with my hands. I couldn't believe how flavorful it was. It still had a good crust of the rub on it and the inside was just running with juice. I will definitely be making this for many more pork shoulders AND RIBS. We had some rub left so we used it on the ribs we made and they turned out just as good as the shoulder. THANK YOU for a great recipe.
Delicious smokehouse flavor. When my DD and I went to prepare this recipe we found that we had misplaced our injection equipment. So instead of injecting the pork shoulder, we doubled the injection fluid and marinated the pork shoulder for 24 hours. Just before we placed it in the smoker we used the most excellent rub mixture! I also must add that the flavor was through out our 9 pound shoulder roast plus it was very tender. I also omitted the cayenne pepper. In addition my DD made a delicious apple pear sauce to go with it! We will definitely be making this again.
I noticed this was the recipe by Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson's so I knew it had to be great and I just had to make this. This turned out excellent and tasted really good! Injecting it really did make it nice and moist and it had a wonderful flavor to it. Thanks KITTENCAL for posting yet another great recipe....
