    Yes you can, treat it pretty much the same I think. Its what hams are made from
     
  3. I just did it yesterday. Turned out great! It took about 11 hours to get it to 200 degrees. Let it rest an hour and it pulled fine. I was surprised at how much meat was there. I will have plenty of leftovers. [​IMG]

    I will do more picnic shoulders after this experience. I think I paid 99 cent a pound for a 12 pounder. They were outta butts and I'm kinda glad as I don't know that I would have tried it, otherwise.

    Sam's club carries the boneless. They call them "cushion meat". Plan on ttrying one in the future.

    Good luck with the smoke!

    Efrain the picnic's are just the lower part of the same shoulder as the butt. They just have more skin on them and a bigger bone inside. Just my two cents, hope it helps some..
