Pork shoulder cuts smoked
I’ve smoked Boston buts many times for pulled pork. Find myself with a picknic for the first time. Lots of bone so easy to make the meat taste good. Just wondering if there is something different that needs attention. Will the the “picnick ham” issue just wondering how different the flavor profile will be

Bone doesn't impart flavor, that's a myth.

I've done several of these and for some reason they take a good bit longer than the Butts??? Flavor will be hammy. Sometimes I will do both, pull them and mix them together. I remove the skin before smoking.

cook the same as a butt. the picnic is from lower down on the shoulder than the butt. I coat with molasses and a good rub then smoke at 250 until it hits 200, rest for an hour then pull it.

Any particular reason why?

The ham portion of the shoulder is a different texture and fat content than the butt. Most smoking is done with the butt then pulled. A whole ham can be smoked but it will need to be sliced and not cooked to as high a temp

The smoke penetrates the meat better and you get a nice bark.
I use the skin in other things..

I smoke a picnic the same as I do a butt and pull them also.
Different flavor and texture but is easy to do and very good. Also as I said sometimes I do both. and mix them
