Green Ham

Discussion in 'Pork' started by gitmosmoke, Sep 30, 2008.

  1. I have a 19 Lb whole green ham cut into butt and shank ends, to prepare for my sons wedding rehersal diner Friday. Can I just skin it and use it like a boston butt? If anyone has another suggestion, other than pulled pork I am open to ideas.

    You can do that, but the taste and texture will be different than with the shoulder...........don't expect "pulled pork" out of the ham.

    Of course, don't expect the classic ham flavor either since it isn't cured.

    Did a fresh ham a couple weeks back. I went with chopped pork because of the different texture turned out great. Good luck that green ham[​IMG]

    Are you actually part of Gitmo or just love to day dream of being the? I have lots of fond memories of gitmo, and even more that i would like to forget.
