    Hi all, I'm brining my own fresh ham and smoking it! question, other than a bit of a different flavour profile can i just as well use a front leg picnic cut as a subsitute? its WAY cheaper, i just want to know the cook and texture is the same and that i wont be making brined pulled pork.

    I can't really answer your question, but I make fully smoked/cooked (145F IT) Canadian bacon (pork loin) and Buckboard bacon (butt) and give them to my family.  They can never remember what I call them and always say "OMG that ham was fanastic!"  I just laugh.
