Good color, resonable fat (not to much, but not to little either) as far as cryovac, ya ain't gettin one round here that ain't, an nearly everone I get is enhanced, I've simply learned ta deal with it. Most of my product is sold so seeins how I'm still sellin it must not be to bad.
I'd buy butts at 89 cents by the 100 pound wieght, which I do!
Now a cryovac butt will have some odor to it when ya open it, that's normal if after a rinse the smell goes away. That is caused from the meat an gas in the airtight package, a cryovac butt will freeze an keep nicely till ya need it.
Lotta folks make a big deal outa the enhancement, I've learned ta deal with it because it's comin ta it more an more. Not really a big deal, I inject my butts so there bein enhanced anywho. The reason the packers have gone ta enhancement (aside from the fact it adds wieght) is to help folks what cook there meat ta death, helps keep em from dryin out. I ain't seen a fresh butt round here in nye on ta two years.
I have used Hormel butts with great success, but hey, it's what works fer me.
