How much difference is there in using a picnic
It instead of a boston butt?
In the final product there is no difference.
The picnic will have a large fat cap that needs to be taken off IMHO, butts usually have it trimmed up during processing.
The butt has more intramuscular fat and cooks up a bit moister IMO....
Yup & a picnic has more connective tissue & usually has to be cooked a few degrees further. They also have a little stronger pork flavor...
I usually mix the two to get a little of both in the pulled pork I make.
