Looking good Polyhead. I take I knife and make deep crisscross cuts so I can have even more surface area/bark. Cooks a little faster as well. If y'all guys want to get into cold smoking, look up A-Maz-n Smoke Generator. It's the tits. You could smoke cheese in a cardboard box if you've so desired. I use it in an electric smoker.

There's my secret....

And my smoker, in the background.... It's a chargriller stick pit. Works great, inexpensive, and I don't use it for a grill. It needs a few mods to bring it up to the level of way more expensive pits. Plenty of Youtube videos on how to modify them.

I burn hardwood lump/comp briquettes/flavored chips.

Coffee, the thing about controlling temperature is a bit difficult, but can be managed if you have a damper. the damper is the area at the firebox that allows you to control how much air is drawn into the firebox. Open it up to increase air-in, and to increase temperature. Close it some to decrease air-in, and to reduce temp. Don't close it off. That will starve it of air and put out the fire. Once you learn where to position your damper to get the right temperature, you will be fine. It takes time to learn your grill, and each grill is different.

Excited about the bark!
Final verdict on this one was a little too dry. The 10 hours was just too much. The center ended up a little mealy, and I couldn't tell much of a difference in smoke flavor vs my usual method. Going back to 6 hours on the smoker and then an oven finish. Easier, more juicy, more consistent results in my opinion. Not that this shoulder couldn't be served at any BBQ restaurant - just not quite as good as usual.

I did a loin in the same manor and it was too dry also. I'm thinking 7-8 hours would have been sufficient.

you guys adding moisture? like a pan of water near the heatsource?

i always thought some spray nozzle spraying apple cider randomly at a smoking pork shoulder would be excellent. IIRC, once that crust forms on a piece of meat, and it starts to dry at the surface, you wont get anymore additional smoke flavor. the smoke is water soluble, so the surface needs to be wet for the smoke to work.

I always have a dish of apple juice right next to the heat.

I spray my injection mix. Vinegar and Applejuice.

I have cooked on a water cooker. To me, they make the bark mushy.
