Are these Boston Butts?

A coworker of mine has a pig farm and sends them to be processed. I need to smoke some pulled pork in a couple of weeks for tacos for my nephews party. I asked her if I could purchase a Boston Butt from her and these are two of what she brought me. They look different than the butts I have bought at the store.  Will they be OK to smoke? Should I smoke them differently than how I normally would? Or should I request a different "cut"?

Yes those are from the same area. They appear to not be the full roast. You will be fine to smoke them like a normal full shoulder roast. Might not take as long.
Really thick pork steak!
