Well, it’s already been about 10 weeks since I’ve taken delivery of my 32”KK and doing my first Pork Shoulder! Based on some learning curves and advise from various forums and cook books I’ve arrived at the following set up and recipe. Ive got a shoulder that is about 7lbs. I dry brined it for about 12 hours with 3tsp of Kosher Salt. After this I rubbed it with yellow mustard and applied Dizzy Pig Dizzy dust. I put it on the KK at about 11PM tonight. Using about 3/4 basket of Fogo Super Premium. Set up CyberQ with a target temp of 240F. Bottom dampers closed and Pit Boss fan damper is 50% open. Top KK vent is just off the gasket. Set up KK cold smoker with a wood pellet mix of about 50/50 Hickory and apple. The photo below is the KK at the start of the cook and decided to include a picture of the moon over the lake....a beautiful evening here! Getting ready for bed now and going to trust that my set up is going to cook flawlessly.....I hope!!!
I’ll include pictures tomorrow of the cook!
thanks for the warm welcome and wishes! I’m stressing out because half of the week I’m not able to be on site but for Thursdays in the afternoons till Monday mornings. I still have a J.O.B. to contend with down in the desert (150 miles south) in Scottsdale, AZ. I think once it’s all done all the stress will disappear and likely say: that wasn’t so bad and what a great outdoor living space we now have!
Here is a picture from 2 weekends ago-the first one is my loyal companion Moka-she is 11 year old chocolate LAB and loves being in the high country with her daddy-me.... The second picture of a small female deer. Where is a bow when u need one? Lol
keep us posted with your progress as well. Chat with us Soon!
I'm going through the same at the moment, however, I have a lot less room and a lot less access than you.
I wish I could get a bobcat into my back yard. After 1 hour of digging shale my hands are ripped up- been pushing pens for too long.
We have been thinking about selling up and moving after 20 years, however, we are close to schools, work, community and decided last night that we will do a complete renovation, starting with the back yard.
Keep the photos coming and I'll share mine on "The Clock is Ticking".
Welcome to the Obsession! Like everyone else, looking forward to the uncrating pics and seeing it in its brand new home!
I'll be curious as well to see how the altitude affects things. You might be flying solo on this one, as I don't think anyone else on the Forum lives up in the clouds!
