I'm smoking a pork butt for pulled pork as we speak. The grocery store has these for 99 cents/lb right now. If this turns out well for me, I'd like to buy a few more while they're cheap. Question is, is it ok to freeze these, then thaw them back out to cook/smoke? I thought I read that you shouldn't freeze ribs somewhere. (is that true? And if so, is the same true for these?) I know sometimes freezing steaks makes them not as good once you cook them. I'd rather pay a few cents extra a pound when I want to cook/smoke one than buy on sale and freeze them and not have as good of quality meat to deal with when I thaw it out.
