Smoking Pork Shoulder Picnic

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I bought a real nice Boston Butt today from my butcher and dropped it off to the wife to refrigerate and when I came home after tball and dinner I found the butt in the freezer. I have a lunch I'm cooking for tomorrow so I went to Walmart and bought a picnic. Anyone have any luck with a picnic?

Here is my dry rub
Dark Brown Sugar - 1 1/2 Cup
Cracked Black Pepper - 2tbsp
Kosker Salt - 2tbsp
Smoked Pakrika - 1tbsp
Ground cayenne pepper - 1tbsp
Ground Cummin - 1tbsp
Ground Mustard - 1tbsp
Celery Salt - 1tbsp
Cracked pepper, Garlic and Herb (Lawry's) - 1tbsp

These Picnic Shoulders make great PP. There is more Bone and Waste but they have a good flavor...JJ

Yep, Picnics are good , especially when they are half the cost of Buttsfrown.gif.

But you're right , they DO pull good . I trim the Rind and use it in other recipes , leaving the fat and Collagen to do the job of flavoring . Oh, and you get more Bark that way too biggrin.gif

Going to start the process of curing a shoulder, and then of course smoke it. Any tips?
