    Pulled Pork with Leg (Ham)

    Hi All,
    I know shoulder is the usual joint for doing pulled pork, but I have a couple boned leg joints left from our Gloucester Old Spots which we kept over last winter. And having got the bug for low and slow cooking I wanted to make use of them.

    Does anyone have any experience of doing pulled pork with this joint?
    Or any other recommended ways of cooking?

    Thanks in advance for your advice

    Vic.

    You say ham, so it's the rear leg? If so no don't cook to pulling temp 150 to 185 max

      Leg joint could also be the "picnic" which is the front shoulder, the lower part containing the joint (the upper part of the front shoulder often is called the butt or Boston butt). Many people have great results using this for pulled pork, some even say it's better. not familiar with using a ham (rear leg) for pulled pork. Likely it's a tougher meatier cut but there's only one way to find out...

        I'm in the UK so terminology probably differs a bit. But yes, I'm referring to the rear leg. From reading elsewhere, it does appear to be a tougher and leaner cut. As you say only one way to find out. But I should probably do a trial run before inviting people round.

        Thanks guys. I will report back to improve shared knowledge.

          If you decide not to try pulling it, you could try your hand at curing it then cooking it in a smoker. (as opposed to the cold-smoking method used for most smoked hams).

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
