This dish is not technically a ham. A ham comes from the shank portion. However it tastes, looks and cooks like a ham.
I was in the supermarket and they had an uncooked smoked pork shoulder on sale for a really good price. Normally, they are obscenely expensive but then they will go on sale for an
incredible price. I think it is because most people don’t know what to do with them.
I had intended to smoke it as I have never done one in the smoker before. However, She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted me to make it this way. She has the ability to persuade so I did so.
I posted the process on the Smoking Meat Forums and the process is at there at this link:
I really like this recipe and I highly recommend it. However, it must be served with scalloped potatoes (I will post my method for making them tomorrow). I don’t make the rules, I just follow them.
