Default sitting out tonight cooking mystery meat

Went to the grocery didn't see any shoulders then saw something that said picnic shoulder ready to cook. When I opened up smelled like ham, so now I'm outside cooking it prepared it like a shoulder cooking about 225 to 230. Am I doing right? Any suggestions would be helpful. In uncharted waters but getting wet anyway

Sounds like you got a picnic shoulder. I have smoked them before however they are not as good as the Boston Butt. The picnic has a higher percentage of ligaments, tendons, connective tissue, etc.

The color of this meat in the package wasn't reddish pink was it?

Ive' seen picnic shoulders come two ways. One is fresh and the other is cured like a ham.
