Default Pulled Picnic

Picked up a 7 pound half picnic the other day.

Trimmed the skin off, rubbed with Meatheads Memphis rub, and placed on the Reverse Flow Charbroil, loaded with charcoal and some apple wood chunks (sorry - forgot the before shot)



Temp was stable at 255 when I left for church. Three hours later pit temp had dropped to 201, the pork was at 160 and looked like this:



Loaded more charcoal to get the temp back up, and let it run about three hours more. IT had reached 182, probed the meat, and the probe went in so smooth - I think I finally understand the 'probe like butter' idea. Took it off the heat - wrapped it in foil, and let it rest about an hour.

Out of the foil and ready to pull:


And the end result:


Best pulled pork I've done, as far as texture and moisture are concerned. The downside is this was an 'enhanced' piece of pork, and even though I left the salt out of the rub, it was a little too salty, and it had a bit of 'hammy' taste. Still going to make some good lunches.

This was a trial run, as I'm still learning the smoker. I've got 15 pounds of non-enhanced pork butts in the freezer for the next time.

Looks real good, I prefer fresh only. The enhanced as was said is a crap shoot and I like to control what goes into my flavors............as much as possible that is

That looks great. It's odd that some of the best pulled pork I've ever done from a moisture and texture standpoint came from a wallyworld enhanced picnic roast. I was surprised it came out as well as it did without being too salty.

I would hit that, I have never had an enhanced one but it sounds to me like I should avoid them if I come across one.

OK, when I cooked this yesterday it was to use for lunches, so all I ate yesterday was a small sample.

Just heated some up for lunch and dang, is that tasty. A little salty, like I said, but a real good apple smoke flavor.

Like some of you have said, I've noticed that the 'enhanced' meats can be hit-and-miss, but if I'm just making a quick grab at the grocery store it's about all they have.

Thanks for all your replies.
