Pork shoulder cut for pulled pork

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This supplier sells bone-in shoulder in the 15-18lbs range. Up here (Canada) we don't call it Boston butt so I am trying to figure out this cut - as I thought Boston is around 10lbs.

Is it a double pack?
They're often sold in a pack of two.

I believe down here that would be called a 'picnic'...usually slightly less expensive than a Boston Butt

That's what I thought. But they said is one piece.

Then it's probably the whole shoulder, butt and picnic combined.

It's probably skin-on, bone-in whole shoulder (butt+picnic). Weight math works out for this "configuration". Should I go for it or stick with boneless butt (bone in difficult to find)? I read some comments here on picnic not being best for pulled pork.

Thank you for responding.

Ditto on the whole thing

i think diggingdogfarm is right, although i never seen them sold in one piece like that, the only other thing that would weigh 18lb. would be the fresh ham but that isn't from the shoulder.
