What to do with my picnic ham shoulder?

  1. I recently purchased a picnic ham cut pork shoulder. I was going to smoke it just like I would a normal bone-in shoulder. However after looking through the threads for ideas, I became confused as to whether I needed to brine it first, or if I could just skin, trim & smoke as usual? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Trim rub and smoke, just like a boston butt. It will turn out fine. But I would reccomend trimming the fat cap off of her.
  3. Thanks Junkie, I just needed a little reassurance...I will post pics when it is done.
