2nd butt coming up!

Discussion in 'Pork' started by aftershox454, Dec 17, 2010.

  1. hey gang,

    got my second butt going into the smoker tomorrow BY REQUEST!!!

    -hahah just wanted to share that [​IMG]

    any way i changed it up this time and got the bone in shoulder from the local butcher instead of the big box store so should be a much better butt

    6 am start time- 9am-1pm at the office- then home to finish off the more than likely 16hr adventure!!!

     When it comes to butts , i buy the cheapest i can find. Pork is not graded like beef and i really can't see where there would be that much difference in the .99 /lb double packs and a hand cut by my local butcher . maybe a little better trim on the fat but not enough to pay the difference.
  3. hahah didn't think of that oh well-

    price difference was less than 3.00 so not too worried about it-

    and it look more oficial coming from the butcher shop wrapped in paper than styrofoam and plastic [​IMG]
  4. The only difference I could see would be whether or not it was enhanced. I always try to get minimally processed butts and ribs. The ribs I can tell a big difference in taste. The enhanced ones seem too salty and hammy.

    The 2 packs at Sam's are excellent.

  9. alright well butt#2 turned out very well and was met with some very happy people-

    no q-view as the digital camera is officially KIA -hunting/water incident [​IMG]

    but after x-mas there should be another one in teh house somewhere and with more butts /ribs to smoke should be a q view overload on New Years!
