As an old-timer told me more than once: "got to burn some bones to get the flavor".

Bone in here too. As Capt says, a good indicator of doneness.

Steve, Someone here has this in their salutation. Very funny. Flower Pot Smoker guy I recall.

Bone in all the way! for 2 reasons.
1) Boneless is more expensive
2) Bones pack plenty of callogen (pig jello, the juicy stuff that makes butts yummy)

Bone in !

We used to say, "The closer to the bone, the sweeter the meat".

So, no bone?----Not as sweet.

Not the original meaning, but this IS a family site!

So I see it it s pretty much unanimous for with the bone.... The score is 142 to 15. I am curious about those who prefer without the bone. why that preference?

Bone in. Aside from the flavor issue and what that adds to the drippings, I figure that by removing the bone and tying the meat back together you're just giving bacteria a chance to get to the middle of the meat - which I don't want on a slow smoke on a big piece of meat! icon_wink.gif

Bone in all the way here! Back when I was just starting this obsession, about 6 years ago, went into the most popular butcher shop around here to get some bone-in pork butt. Butcher tells me "We don't get it that way, what you want that for?"

I go "Can you order me some?"

"Nope. Use boneless, it's better."

I have not set foot in that attitudinal shop since. And I'm better for it.
