Revised the pig half graphic :
Thanks, Pops! I'm still trying to get used to the new nomenclature...
I'm a rank 'newbie', and even as I type my 1st smoke is underway, (MES30) - - I just looked at the 'graphic', is a Boston Butt like I have in my smoker and a "HAM BUTT" as shown in the graphic the same cut of pork?
The Boston Butt you have is shown as Pork Shoulder in the graphic.
& the ham butt & pork shoulder are entirely different cuts.
Many thanks... Over the years I have learned that if you don't ask questions when you don't know - then you have a 50-50 chance of remaining ignorant if you make the wrong choice. I like the forum, and I am learning rapidly.
Stick around - this is a fine place to be
