Need help with cooking a pork center section

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokinggun87, Oct 30, 2010.

  1. Hey guys. So I went to the local butcher and picked up a few things to smoke for tomorrows football games. While I was there I asked about a pork picnic and he said he had a center section that he said he likes better. It was only 8 bucks for a good sized piece so I bought it. Does anyone know what a good way to cook this is? [​IMG]

    Not sure what a center section is ? But looks like a hunk of butt so i'd smoke it as such.

    rub and fridge overnight  smoke @ 235 to 160 internal ,wrap in foil and cook to 200 for pulled pork.
