Sometimes I even surprise myself with the conclusions I draw. I posted on FB last night that the giant pork shoulder package I purchased was actually TWO shoulders and not one. Well, no wonder it weighed so damn much. It was like dragging a small child to hoist it into my cart. ME? I was thinking it was just some SUPER PIG. Quit laughing. It's actually sort of sad that I would know so little about pigs. Whatever.
After brining both overnight, I got them rubbed, and on a little after 8 thing morning and they are gently puffing away in the back yard and now the heat is below where I actually want it. Enter my blow dryer. I started blowing to get the heat up with no luck. I gave up and just decided to be patient--like that's really going to happen. Have you met me? Anyway, now we're a goin' just fine and the temp is purrrrfect. Funny how that works.
I am mildly concerned about the two mosquito bites I got getting things going.....I'm hoping this doesn't turn into West Nile pulled pork. Yeeesh.
