    Yeh, I think with the Picnic it would be better to get out the electric knife (after you remove the bones) and just cut out some cross sections and pull those independently.

    Twas a little work getting the skin and fat off, bones came right out, actually almost fell out.

    For ribs I like my Modified Memphis Dust. For pork shoulder I prefer the PBC All-Purpose and then right before I throw it in the cooker, a light sprinkle of 50/50 white and brown sugar.

    Lookin good Jrod. So what do you prefer to work with, butt or picnic? I'm guessing butt might be more user friendly?

    At the 10 hour and 41 minute mark it got put to rest.

    At the 15 hour and 51 minute mark I got to make me a nice little sammich before bed.

    I yielded exactly 6 pounds of pulled product off of a 13.11 pound picnic.

    Not bad for that much skin and bone, lotta skin and bone compared to a butt. Looong muscle fibers.

    And how much of that bark will actually make it to the table?

    9 hour mark. 163 internal. Church went loooong (good thing) so the cooker cooled off a little more than I wanted, no biggee, got her at about 220 now still rolling unwrapped.

    Gonna bark the chrud out of this thing. I don't need it until about 8 tonight so extended cooking time is welcome.

    Man that sucker is smelling gooooooooooood!! 5 hour 10 minute mark. 152 internal. Headed to church.

    Took off the rebar, laid on the grate with some foil underneath. Kinda somewhat leaned it on one side of the barrel with the hooks propping it off the side wall.

    Put some foil around one of the rebar holes to keep the temp under 250. Barrel temp has settled in the upper 230's. Gotta like that.

    She can ride to probe tender.

    Extended the hang time to 4:30 A.M. CST (technically 4:34) so I could have this for supper. I substitute Allspice and Thyme powder, for the Ginger and Rosemary powder, respectively.

    Cut my last piece of rebar, lit her up with solid B & B and gave her a 15 minute preheat. I had some other rebar I re-purposed from another cooker that were just a little too short. Any movement and they would fall off. Click image for larger version
