    MAK One Star Duroc Picnic Pics

    I posted a teaser in the lounge...

    This was not a competition style cook...it was a fun one

    Started with a Vande Rose Farms Duroc Picnic Used Carolina Treet for the glue and then hit it with a heavy dose of Plowboys Yardbird.

    Placed in the ONe Star on Smoke for an hour. Bumped the temp to 250 Foiled at color...about 178..Took it off the cooker at 195 and let it rest foiled for one hour.

    No Injection and no sauce. It was fabulous...I liked the rub and bark and the Duroc is really significantly deeper and richer in flavor.

    Wow! As if that caramelization on that bark isn't enough, the pink from the smoke ring just makes me want to swim in pork!

    Wow that looks moist, never smokes a picnic. I heard they are a little more ham tasting than butts is that true?

    One lesson I learned the hard way: ALWAYS read the label to be sure the picnic has not been "Enhanced." Because those have been injected with a brine that makes them taste hammy.

    Otherwise, once the picnic or butt has been cooked & pulled I sure can't tell a difference. I did 50 lbs of butts & picnics in August for the marching band cookout. Nobody else seemed to notice any difference either.

    But that's my opinion, and you know what they say about opinions - lol!

    This is also the Vande Rose Duroc Pork..it is all natural and very fresh...they slaughter once a week and fed ex...with beef you like a controlled aging with pork the fresher the better.
