    My local grocery store has smoked picnics on sale this week but I have no idea what this is. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to cook it? Preferably crockpot method. I would appreciate any info or advice given. THANKS!!!

    This is pork shoulder that has been smoked - it's much like a ham, but made with a different cut of meat.

    You can treat it pretty much like a ham, though. I cook ham in the crockpot all the time - just put it in with 1/2 cup water, put on high and about 3 or 4 hours later it's done. The picnic ham may take longer because of the cut of meat.

    A "picnic" is basically a ham, only it comes from the front leg of the pig rather than the back. It's cured and smoked the same way. The bone is placed a little more awkwardly when it comes time to carve it, but it's not that big a deal. icon_smile.gif

    Because I've always been a small household, I don't think I've ever bothered with a whole one, but my mother used to prepare it the same way as a ham.

    My mom would buy them all the time. She'd get smaller ones and make potato or pea soup with them.
