They have a case of 3 cryovac packed 16 pound roasts. They stated they are the butt portion of the roasts. Upon asking, they stated they are not the whole shoulder and they are not two roasts packed together. I asked them to send me a picture and I've attached it below.
I've been out of the meat cutting business for 20 years, but it looks like alot like a butt roast to me.
My question is, can butt roasts be 16lbs, is this a whole shoulder roast, or is this more likely 2 roasts packed together?
It doesn't really make a difference except in how I'm going to prepare. I've never tried smoking the picnic portion.
Thanks in advance for your help!
