    For easter holiday, decided to try out a veal leg.

    Smoked it on acacia wood till I got an IT of 170F. Wrapped it in foil with some fresh made BBQ sauce. the meat fell of the bones at the end and it was perfect.

    That looks great...what's it like?  Is fall off the bone the way it's done like pulled pork?

    it was very tender and juicy.

    we thought we would need a knife to debone it, but when we unwrapped it; the meat has pulled off the bones alread and we just pulled the bones out. I am going to be doing this again soon for sure.

    So you pulled it like a pork shoulder and made sandwiches?  Wondering how it was served.

    We cut the meat into chunks and served it with a side of spiced rice made with chicken soup and salad.

    Maybe next time I will pull it like you said and make sandwiches, I assume that this much meat would make lots of sandwiches [​IMG].

    This is certainly on my to do list, thanks for the inspiration!  Sounds really great.
