Sack-o-pork Results

Well, the boneless/mutilated picnic roast that was rubbed and shoved in a net bag turned out excellent. Pulled of at 182 internal, as the polder probe slid in and out easily anywhere I stuck it. MikeO stopped by, and it was nice to meet him and chat over a beer. He left about 20 minutes before I pulled it off the egg. As expected, it fell apart into chunks after the first slice. It was not as salty as I expected from being packed in that salt solution. The smoke was prevelant, and blendeed nicely with the pork. The "perfect picnic" rub from smoke and spice was perfect for this cut. Lots of pepper, and simple.[p]It really did taste considerably more like ham than a boston butt. Very, very moist and tender...much more so than a ham. Some leftovers....enough for a couple samiches.[p]I might just have to make up some more french bread tomorrow, and have a picnic samich with mustard on fresh egged french bread.[p]Happy
