first try with picnic butt pics

My wife bought a picnic butt, almost by accident. We haven't done one of these before, so I read you do them just like boston butt's (the most likely kind at Sam's, the picnic came from Aldi's)

it worked just about the same, I had it on for 12 hrs, it came up to 195, and I had to leave for several hrs, so I took it off , foiled it, and let it rest. I pulled it and sauced it later.

package label


out of the package it looks different, with a bigger bone, and a big exposed fat cap, came right off though



after about 12 hrs on the Traeger at 225



ready for foil


see the different bones than butt


pulled ready for sauce, which we usually do later as we like different sauces (we put a little on to keep it moist)



do any other wives think it is weird we take pictures of what we cook??

Wow that looks great, I have never done a picnic, may have to give it a try. As long as I'm feeding the family they don't care if I try to take pictures.

My whole family thought I was nuts taking pics of food when I first started out.
Nice butt!
