Quite the interesting cook this one was. lol    For one it was the first picnic roast I've done.  I broke out the jumbo mini aka Jimmy made from a 18" JJ with a 80 quart SS pot....Well I forgot how shallow the lid was on that sucker and when I put the lid on the big bone was hitting the top of the lid.  So what I ended up doing was put a couple of skinny splits on the lip of the pot to raise the lid about 1" to increase the clearance and every 90 minutes or so I lifted the pot off and put some skinny little splits in.  So this ended up being a stick burning cook in my little jumbo mini!  That's something you don't do or see everyday, but it worked really good.


Ok on to the cook, Prep wise I pulled the skin and applied Wild Thang rub (which is a savory peppery) type rub and put it on the spit paying attention to avoid the bones best I could. This was a 6 1/2 hour cook for a 10.5 lb roast, no foil.  You could see it self basting the whole time which is what makes rotisserie cooking really shine!

I put a pan on the bottom shelf to catch the drippings to mix back in.  I'll post pulled sammie pics after dinner. Thanks for looking!!

Points for the bark-a-luscious goodness!
Thanks Case, the self basting really adds to some nice bark.

Thanks Al!   I got lucky working with the splits worked out...all in all very pleased and the roast didn't fall off the spit taking it to pulling is a good thing. lol

That is interesting, Keith. Picnic shoulder is my favorite for PP, but I just measured my clearance on my lid (again) to be sure. My current configuration can only handle a piece of meat about 9" across. Maybe...just maybe, I can squeeze a picnic down enough to make it fit as I stab the tines in...about a 9lber instead of my usual 11-13lbers. I guess I could trim it way back on the upper section and help it fit...one way or another, I wanna get a picnic spun-up like yours...that looks fantastic!!!

OK, I think it's time to search for a roti-kit for my 26.75" OTG (the beast)...then I don't have to worry much about what will fit...LOL!!! And, I'd have a decent capacity of rotisserie cookers for gatherings.

BTW, love the look of your plate, especially that creamy slaw-laden PP sandwich!!!

Thanks Richie, most of the baskets out there are garbage...I'm working on better basket system than what's currently available.   I hate the spit rod going through the middle and the screws slipping of the rod.  Plus they are just so small @ 14.5 X 7

  I'd like to get a 26.5 roti setup myself!    Definitely no problem with room in that bad boy.
