We want to cook this at about 200 - 225 degrees, should I score all the skin, or remove some of it on one side. Thanks for your help. Willie

    I would skin it to get more bark. -RP

  • Willie, Pork legs don't have as much fat in them as compared to a pork shoulder. I cooked a whole pork leg awhile back and they are abit dry compared to a shoulder so I would leave the skin on to keep it as moist as possible throughout the cook.

    Thanks for responding. We cooked one one these years ago on our gasser, it had some of the thick skin on, so we will remove a bit of it ( one side )and slow cook it. Getting this next week, will advise afer the cook on our egg. Thanks, Willie.
