    Pulled pork internal temp?

    Should I cook to 190 or 205? Whats the difference in texture? I have a 7lb pork shoulder no bone

    Big Poppa & FL, thanks for the info. I will start cooking tonight and finish sometime tomorrow. I will shoot for 195 - 200 range. Is there a good temp to start the cook? I look to bump up the pit temp when the internal temp reaches 145/150. Don't want to be cooking all day.

    Happy Holiday's to you and your families!

    Craig, Harry Soo (Took 3rd place in King of the Smoker) has published a fantastic pulled pork instruction from start to finish, all recipes included! injection, foil wrapping liquid, finishing sauce, it's all there! Recipes to all of it plus step by step cooking instructions. He really gave up the goods with this one! Some of the cooking instructions you won't be able to use because they're for a WSM but you can easily adapt for a pellet cooker.
    I've tried Harry's pork instructions and can say it's some of the best pork I've done and is now my standard pork process.

    Craig, when pork is "finished" will be something you determine for yourself after cooking many of them. At 195 pork is more moist but less tender than at 208. At 208 pork is more tender but less moist than it is at 195. Somewhere in between those 2 temps will yield what you consider to be the best pork.
    We all have a favorite temp or "feel" to tell us when pork is cooked to our liking but you will make your own determination of when pork is "finished" after cooking many pork butt experiments.

    BTW, the above also holds true for brisket.

    Scooter....

    This recipe looks fantastic...

    Do you agree with the 250'F temperature? I've always smoked shoulder at 220-230'F, but I've also pulled out my hair a few times waiting for the shoulder to finish....
