English pork pie

This is my attempt at an english pork pie.  I've got some smoked picnics that are left over, and I'm looking for a tasty recipe for them.   So instead of the pork shoulder called for I used a smoked shoulder.  The crust and seasonings are per the recipe on the website.  I'm lucky to have a scale that measures in both metric and imperial measure.     
This is what the pie looked like.  I don't have a deep pie dish, so I used a stainless rectangular pot that I'd bought at an auction a while ago.  it worked out, but to be pretty I'd have preferred the crust to be taller than the dish. 

I'm not going to post a recipe here because I'd like to try making it a few more times, perhaps find a proper pie tin.  But I thought I'd share with you guys what I'm eating tonight.
