So I got those $1/lb butts I posted about previously on the keg tonight ... 4 butts about 30lbs trimmed ... it's full .. two on the top squished together at a right angle to two on the bottom squished together. On about two hours ago, running smooth. I started with the slightly smaller ones on the bottom rack and the top ones are practically sitting right on top of them. I plan to flip them 3 ways in about 6 hours to even out the cooking ... top ones to the bottom, all flipped over, all currently squished edges to the outside.








This shows what I was mentioning when I posted about them, some oddly cut with the top of the picnic attached. I didn't buy them .... I bought the ones with the smallest legs Smiley





Skin off, but I left skin 'socks' on the small ends to help them stay moist.





And on they go ....








Bonus pic: last night's small pizzas in the oven, chicken, fresh basil, red pepper, red onion:

That's going to be a lot of good butt!  never saw a butt with the top of the picnic attached. 
Did you do anything with the skin?

Pizza looks great too

ya, that's been nagging me, I'm thinking they are actually picnics from larger animals. picnics I have bought in the past were usually tapered and much smaller ... like half this size. these are pretty much square. I will know for sure what's up when I rip them apart.

nope nothing done with skin. what does one do with it? chicharones?

So let's get this out of the way first. I was wrong, not butts, they are big picnics. Not a negative at all, these were beautiful, ended up moist, lots of bark, very little waste and I'd score these ones on par with if not even better than butts for yield, bark and overall smokey porky goodness.

They were cooked to perfection IMHO. Tender, juicy ... I pulled the bones out effortlessly and the picnics just flayed themselves wide open. Grab a big chunk, push down on it and it just separated itself. Cleaned up the guk, chopped a bit, seasoned a bit more, tossed and done.



Done done done at 19 hours. Then they got a two hour cooler rest, no reason for 2hrs other than I was busy:







Had to take a pic here ....  Shocked





Just look at this beautiful hunk of bark, around 4"x 6", no waste. I chopped up pieces like this rather small to 'season' the rest of the bowl with bark.

Thanks so much! What a huge compliment!

NP is one of my favorite drummers! More like a god among mortals IMO.

For the uninitiated he is the drummer for Rush. Check him out on Youtube as well. Here is a link to a NP performance at a Buddy Rich tribute performance :

(take some time to listen after the intro, at least to the 3 min mark)


Ps: this pulled pork was not THAT good Cheesy
