Yep, IMHO a fresh/green ham makes the BEST BBQ. Now, they're not quite as forgiving as a butt/shoulder, but awesome meat and a better flavor than the butt. I do pay particular attention to keeping these moist though. I do inject, and I do foil, and the drippings get poured back into the foil before sealing up. They come out moist, tender, taste like the pulled pork that it is.
Awesome job K80Shooter.
