If I'm following along of your description of the trimming..., this one did not have the skin still on the picnic end? This is the basic trim I've had on whole shoulders.

Yeah mine came from SRF closely trimmed as you can see from the initial post so I did not have to trim anything. I have never cooked a shoulder let alone trim one...

That is some beautiful color on the skin.

I'm about ready to pull mine, I'm sure my bark has mostly dissolved from being covered. Once I pull the meat I will chill most of it and vac seal tomorrow and freeze for future meals for my wife and I.

Out of the oven... 4 Hours smoke, 4 hours panned and covered in the oven...

The bark more or less dissolved during it's time in the oven plus there was so little external fat.

The bones pulled with no effort just grabbed hold of them with tongs and they released.

Pretty much filled a full size hotel/steam table pan.

Once chilled I will vac seal in approximately 1 pound bags and put into the freezer for future meals. I am very pleased with the results, nice subtle smoke, incredibly tender and moist, and a really deep rich pork flavor and not in the least fatty. My wife said it was the best pulled pork she has ever eaten. That says a lot considering no rub just a little salt applied to the exterior about 15 min prior to going into the smoker. I am really happy I have another in the freezer and will definitely buy more of these from SRF.

That looks awesome Bill! I had one in the cart also but before I pressed the "order" button I went and checked the freezer and no capacity. Next time for sure. Great post.

I will 100% agree. My mother isn't much for BBQ in general (brisket/ribs/pulled pork etc) but she couldn't resist this! I have never had pork be so tender/juicy as compared to this Berkshire shoulder.

The finished product looks really good, and I can't believe only 8 hours of cooking time. Mine would easily go 15 or 16 hours, then 3 or 4 for resting. I've had Berkshire ribs so I can only imagine the flavor of the shoulder.

Some of the darker colored muscles around the bones on the picnic really compliment the meat from the butt. It's a pleasure to cook something with that kind of mass.

Nicely done Bill!

I'm a fan of Berkshire pork, luckily for me there's a coop of farmers in the area that have a retail outlet in Ankeny that sells it. No confinement pigs either, they are raised in hoop barns and let out to roam in good weather.
