    Our local cash and carry started to carry bone in pork butt in a two pack cryovac so I thought I would give it a try. Picked up a 17 lb. bag and the results are this:

    Butt #1: Rub was 1C brown sugar, 3 Tbs. of very spicy Jerk rub, and 2 Tbs. of kosher salt.

    Summary: This is a definate keeper! The bark was sweet and spicy, the meat was very juicy. Super tastey!

    Butt #2: Rub was 1C brown sugar, 4 Tbs. Old Bay Seasoning, 2 Tbs. fresh black pepper.

    Summary: Very juicy but not as much flavor as the other rub. Still very tastey and would be any chain BBQ joint hands down.

    I really like the butts both of them and that old bay rub sounds alittle familiar to me.

    Man looks great, I like Old Bay taste and smell. Usually I just put it in my crab boil along with a bag of  Zatarains boil.

    Think I will try a little bit added to my rub.

    Thanks everybody!

    I found adding Old Bay to a rub really is a nice way to get some additional flavor into it, I use it in place of cellary salt/seed since it has some cellary salt in it. It did OK by itself in the rub, but it didn't stand out after the butt was cooked. I also like using Old Bay on chops and just pan frying them with a little EVOO - that is very tastey!

    The winner was definately the Jerk seasoning butt. I could have just eaten all the bark and been happy... lol.
