Off to a LATE start today on my smoke.. 3pm Kick off..
Went to the In-laws for FD and then the Store :tap:

The only saving grace is that it's a small Picnic.. After the Fat was trimmed it's probably 3lbs or a little over.
I'm gonna try and keep the temps up around 240-250

Rubbed with OO and then a mix of Emeralds and Jeff's rub made with Turbinado.

Ok I cranked up the heat when I foiled it.. 300-315 and its now 12am and I just took it off at 196.
I will never do a small one again.. If I'm going through this I want 4-5lb of meat on the finished product. I will post pics tomorrow.. I still have to let it rest and pull.. I see 1am for this..

The good thing is that you can know what;s in them. No mystery meat.

Have you ever cooked a picnic to just 155-160 and just sliced it like roast beef or ham? IMHO, one of the better things one can do with a picnic. Butts are a little too fatty for that, but picnics slice up nice and do well with a little sauce over the top.

Picnic's are good for slicing and make good hams.
Like SO said about the butts ,there to fatty to slice so I like to use them the pulled pork.

Either way you go about it, It always comes out good!

BTW-We're still waiting on the finished pics:msn-wink:

It appears that Mr. Appetite may have interfered with the process.:msn-wink::whathesaid:

Yep. I came all this way and no finished pics!
The "in progress" pics sure looked righteous though!
Cap'n & Sprite - good for the pig & the smoker! :msn-wink:

After the pic I poured on the juices from the foil and then put in the frig to tonights dinner.

Its real good, I used a finishing sauce that I made for that vinegar flavor I like on my pulled pork.

And slicing for me is out of the question, with that much time into a smoke I'm pulling that sucker.. If I'm slicing I smoke a Loin..
Thanks for the interest...

Looks real good! Never can go wrong with pulled pork!:thumbs up:

Loins are pretty good sliced too.
They also make good canadian bacon or ham.
