    First Pork Butt ?s

    Sorry, the word 'ask' should be 'all'.  When you take tougher cut of meat and cook it slowly, the meat fibers don't cook before the connective tissues have had a chance to 'melt' away.  With the connective tissues rendered out it is much more tender.  If you were cook your butt rapidly, it...
