    1 8lb pork shoulder 88 cents per pound. $7.04

    Trim the pork shoulder of the outer skin and fat, then brine in salt, sugar and No 1 cure for 7 days.

    Remove ham from brine and place in plain water for 1 hour.

    Remove from water and thoroughly dry with a towel.

    Place in a 100/150 degree oven for 40 mins to further dry.

    Rub real Maple syrup all over the ham .

    Rub with your favorite dry rub.

    Place in smoker for 5 hrs replacing chips once an hour and turning the ham twice.

    Remove from smoker, wrap in tin foil and place in 250 degree oven for 1 hour.

    Remove and behold the goodness:
