Were the pores yellow or white? I’m pretty sure this is Laetiporus cincnnatus. See http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/jul2001.html

Most people would probably not recognize true Laetiporus persicinus as a Laetiporus, because it doesn’t look like a Laetiporus at all. In fact, molecular and morphological studies place it well outside the genus Laetiporus. There have been some errors in field guides calling L. cincinnatus (which used to be L. sulphureus var semialbinus) by this name.
