How To Smoke A Ten Pound Pork Shoulder

Ingredients
1 10 lb Pork Shoulder
Salt, kosher or sea
Pepper, Black
Hickory wood, dry cured
Method
* Build a good sized fire in your smoker out of hickory wood. I like to use my Weber Kettle as it puts out world class smoked meat
* Let your fire go to embers
* Place your heavily salted and peppered Pork Shoulder on opposite side of smoker from fire
* Open bottom vent and top vent all the way as George cooks his meat at high temperature. He gets a big shoulder or butt off his smoker in about 3 hours so that should tell you how hot he's cooking
* This is not the typical low and slow style in fashion at many pits around the country. That's ok, as for this style barbecue, the shoulder ends up with a heavy, crispy crust of the much prized "outside slice" portion of pork
My visits to Archibalds are sorely limited by the fact I live in Central Texas and while Black's down in Lockhart can approach the greatness of Archibald's, honestly there is no finer barbecue to be had than in George's little 6 seater in Northport Alabama.
