    A newbie to smoking, can you use a picnic shoulder for pulled pork.

    That's usually what I use.
    I think they are fabulous for pulled pork.

    I use pork shoulders alot. So throw your shoulder into the smoker and then come back in and hit Roll Call so we can give you the warm welcome we like to give to new members.

    Absolutely. If I'm feeding a lot of people and want to stretch my dollars, I'll use 2 picnics for each butt i smoke. If I'm just feeding family or close friends, I use strictly butts. Just a personal preference.

    When I first started, I thought shoulders were "butts" due to my misinterpreting a recipe in a Weber grill cookbook.

    Anyhow, I remember some of my best pulled pork w/ homemade bbq sauce was with whole picnics.
