    My local grocer has this for sale this week at $1.39/lb. I've never done a pork butt before and I'd like to try it this weekend. Is this a standard pork butt? The ''roast'' on the end is throwing me for a loop.

    A boston butt is a GREAT piece of meat for pulled pork! go for it!
  3. It probably is, but with retailers constantly coming up with Artsy Fartsy labeling ya never know....It could be boneless...It could be a common 9 lb pork butt run through the Hobart to make 2 "Roast" to appeal to the Crock Pot ladies...

    Suggest you go by the store for a look see........

    Yep, "Boston", "shoulder", "butt"...if any of those three appear on the label, you've got a pulled pork smoke in the makings.

    That's what I'm thinking b/c the ad also mentions a ''family pack'' in it. I'm assuming it may be one, or two small butts 5lbs or less.
  6. Could be...Also could just be a two pack (cryovac) of two regular pork butts...If that's the case, and you plan to cook both at the same time, try to choose a package where the two butts look equal in size...
