    Just went to buy some and they were "enhanced up to 12% for tenderness" so I just didn't get any. I'd rather get raw butts. Never had good luck with the injected ones.

    I have never seen a Hormel product that wasn't shot up with something, that's why i stay away from that crud.
    If your a butt briner, i guess you won't be able to tell....just takes away from the natural flavors of the pork IMO.
    I guess soaking might work but while all that salt is coming out, what do you think happens with the juices?

    Thanks for the tip! Picked up a couple here @ Liberty, MO. These were the butcher ones - not the Hormel cryovac. As a bonus - I get an extra 5% off since my teenagers work there!!!!!

    Wish the spares would have been on sale!!!

    thanks again!

    Saw the ad in our local paper today. Sale is thru Sunday so planning to check these out tomorrow. Hoping to pick up at least 3, have at least that much room in our freezer.

    Our local Fareway will match Hy-Vee prices, they wont match this one because Hy-Vee's are enhanced, Fareways are'nt, so their not the same and don't have to offer the same price. but they do for BB ribs, that i cleared them out on for 2.10$/# a couple months ago.
     
  17. I just got back from one of the Omaha Hy-Vee stores and am happy to say that the sale is still going on! I picked up five roasts today at .99 per lb. Unfortunatley, they were all in the 3-4 lb range so I picked up the biggest ones I could get. I spose that just means when I smoke these I will just have to drink my beer faster to get as many in. Thanks again for posting this. I probably would have missed out otherwise!

  18. Oh I forgot to mention that these are fresh butcher packed roasts, NOT injected Hormel roasts!
