Finished results and thoughts.
9lb shoulder took 19.5 hours to reach 202. Longest cook time I’ve ever experienced on that size shoulder. 12 hours at 225 . Remainder at 245. Had my Maverick thermometer measuring the pit and the IT of the shoulder as well as the Traeger’s. Pit temp measured the same on both. The meat probs were within 2 degrees of one another. Seemed more Smoke was produced when not in super smoke mode.
Shoulder was moist and delicious. Very light smoke profile.
