Smoking Picnic roast

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My wife bought a Picnic roast with a big layer of fat on 1 side. I can't believe this is what she bought but she did. I have never smoked a picnic roast before. I always buy and smokeunsure.gifa pork butt without this big layer of fat. My question is do I cut this big layer of fat off, and if I don't do I cook it with the fat side up or on the bottom?


Thank You,

I always cook with the fat side down and still on. Me myself I prefer the picnic to the butt. Seems to have a much better flavor.

What I do is cut off all the fat and then what ever fats left I lay it be fat side up. Then cook it how you cook your butts normally.

I personally leave the fat on and cook it fat side down...

I don't do them often but when I do I usually trim the fat to 1/4-1/2" then smoke it just like a butt
