Made two pork shoulders yesterday / this morning, one of them with the Rub Co sample I got in the mail this week.

I thought this rub was very well balanced as far as sweet and salty goes, and very middle of the road, as far as the flavor. Which isn't to suggest that it was boring or bland, just a great example of classic Q flavor. I might order some to keep on hand, but I don't like sweet at all in my barbecue, so it won't be my go-to.

I put these two shoulders on the smoker at 9:00 am, and had the smoker pretty constant at 225. They stalled at 140 for about 6 hours, and then another 4 hours at 165. I ended up moving them to my oven around 6:00 pm when it was time for dinner. I cranked the oven up to 325, and by 1:00 this morning they were only at 175. I decided to say *(*^( it, pulled them then instead of waiting till they got to 190, and went to bed. Turns out, they were very tender and easy to pulls.

This is only the second time I've smoked shoulders, but I think 10 hours of stalling is a little on the long side. Not sure if it's something I was doing, or maybe the weather. It was incredibly humid all day, felt like it was going to storm any minute but never did.

Anyway, you probably aren't reading this for the articles. Here's some prawn:

This is the Rub Co shoulder:



This one is rubbed with my own blend:


The final product, Rub Co still on the left. No in progress pictures, because the camera lens fogged up as soon as I stepped outside with it.



Pulling apart. The pork was really moist, and the bark had all the smokey flavor I would have wanted.:


Might have to make this one my background at work...


I plated up what I would have had for dinner last night, if this was finished then. I also smoked a few chicken sausages, made some cole slaw with pickled radishes, and hummus. Dessert was some fruit with yogurt.



I made some Roxy's SC mustard sauce, and it was really great (left out the sugar). I think that's going to be a staple in our house.

Nice pron and thanks for the post! If your not a fan of sweet, that rub isn't for you. You would love our Original Rub which is savory and spicy with NO SUGAR. Next time your in the market for some rub, give it a try.

Teleking - That was my first thought to, but I measured the probe in an ice bath, in boiling water, and on skin, and it was +-3F. *shrug*

Smokin - Thanks

k.a.m. - Thanks

Flickster - Thanks

Ryan - Will do, when it is back in stock
