    I also have to mention that I have had my husband bone out a Picnic Pork roast (skin on) and have grilled it via indirect heat, with a pan to catch drippings. Meat was fantastic, but the smokey gravy I made with the drippings are what I ALWAYS want on mashed taters.

    IowaGirl--Your description of Picnic is what I was talking about. And the skin on thing must be regional, but we have always purchased from super markets. My family has been eating skin-on Picnic Pork Roast out here (greater Los Angeles metro area) for over 40 years When we were kids it was cheaper to cook a giant Picnic than it was to buy chickens enough to feed us all -- five kids in our family! Any way, everyone in my family likes pork roast and we all fight over the crispy skin.

    If you look at the USDA recommendations, yes, 145 F is the recommended minimum "safe" temp. But the Amazing Ribs temp recommendations chart and other reputable sources suggest lower temps are also safe. From Chicago Tribune, May 24, 2011: "...Good quality pork can and should be handled like beef. I prefer 130 to 140 (degrees) for loin cuts of pork...." Coming from a pork producing family (4+ generations), I know how hogs are raised and have no problem cooking modern pork to lower temps like beef

    The way I learned it -- A picnic cut is the lower part of the shoulder going into the foreleg, just as the shank portion of a ham is the lower part of the hindquarter going into the hind leg. Whether it has skin or not is up to the butcher. Mostly in Iowa you find most pork cuts, including the picnic, without skin. Maybe that's a regional thing?

    When cooking at 300 and above there won’t be a stall.

    For sliced pork roast, I like to liberate the collar (AKA coppa, AKA money muscle) from the pork butt and smoke it to about 165º. Here's a post in SUWYC from a while back

    OK, the link may not go to the actual post, but it's #1450 on the fall-winter 2019-2020 SUWYC thread.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa!!! Back up there! Where are the pictures of the pork? No pics, it didn't happen. Pics of a thermometer graph just don't cut it, Joetee !

    Really good. I took a lot of notes.

    I was worried about these.

    I usually smoke at a lower temp. Good crust. Juicy without being greasy. I don't think there was much of a stall. I did foil wrap for the last 1 - 1 1/2 hours and then put in the cooler for about 2 - 3 hours until dinner time.

    The graph isn't the whole cook but just to show you.

    Ok just to let you all know.
    I was trying to smoke around 300°. It was from 280 to 310°. The two butts totaled about 20 to 21 pounds.
    Smoked for 8 1/2 hours. Removed them from smoker in the 197° IT range. I didn't bother taking one off early because everywhere I took a temp reading was different.
    Now... They were much better than what I smoked before. They usually come out greasy for my taste. These were not greasy at all. I still pulled the smaller one and served chunks of the other.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.
