Some Pulled Pork

Post by Rib Fan » Fri Oct 16, 2009 11:25 am

Went and got some picnics at 69 cents a pound and slathered them with yellow mustard and then rubbed them up. Put them on the Large BGE. Let the guru do the work while I slept :)

No problem.....the picnic is the lower portion of the shoulder on a pig. To confuse the matter more...most people call the shoulder a Boston Butt. Some claim that the picnic has a slightly "hammier" taste than the shoulder (butt). I personally prefer the picnic and generally get a much better deal on them where I am located.

Nice job ribfan, those roasts have a nice bark on them.
I usually buy picnics too because they're usually a good price (not hard to find on sale) and then de-bone them and use them for jerk pork, cochinita pibil, etc.
There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who are good at math and those who aren't.

Trev I pick mine up at a chinese grocer in Toronto. Very fresh, not enhanced and last ones I bought were 69 cents/pound. I bought from the same place in the summer and got them for 48 cents/pound. The shoulder was $1.09/pound.
I actually like the taste of the picnics when making pulled pork...I find there is a greater depth of flavour there.
Jerk pork is a favourite of mine and your reply puts that on the top of my to do list...thanks.
