Hi, Just curious if anyone here is as much of a procastintator and impatient as I.
I'm cooking for the second time and Frozen pork shoulder. My local butcher has nice pork shoulders but they are usually frozen. I often don't think far enough ahead to purchase one with enough time for it to properly thaw before I want to smoke it. The first time this happened the butcher said go ahead and cook it - it shouldn't be a problem - so I did. I found he was right. I applied the mustard, the rub and stuck it in the smoker for an overnight minion method cook. By morning I could stick a probe, and by the time we wanted to eat in the early afternoon it was completely done. It was really really GOOD!
So I am doing it a second time - my wife on Saturday said she would like to have pork shoulder for mother's day, so Hey I said NO PROBLEM! 6lb boston butt frozen, mustard slathered, rubbed, and in the smoker by 9pm. Internal temperature by 11am was 186 and now at 1:30 it is done at 190. We're eating at 4pm. And I'm going out to take it out soon.
I was just wondering if anyone else has cooked it from frozen? I got to say I feel a little guilty about how easy it is to do it this way.
