my local grocery chain (H.E.B.) has "pork for bbq" on sale; it is bone in. i just got back from there, bought a package. looks like two small boston butts, in one package. more like a butt cut in half, through the bone. will find out when i smoke them i guess. looks nice. they had about 5 pakages. i got the best looking (to me) one. they are $0.99/lb.

i know every now & then h.e.b. screws up & triple orders- a couple years ago we got fat cap 15-18lb briskets @ 15 cents ( yup) per pound cause of a comp. glitch they way over ordered- we bought 30 of them for that price ($.15 per lb)was a 1 day sale.... gotta luv h.e.b. (btw fer ya non texans- thats herbert e. butt grocers)what a name... i bet that is a bad cut & it's 2 split shoulders- butts usually don't have a bone- if it's a flat bone - it's shoulder- round bone- it's shank or butt

every boston butt i have bought before had a bone. they do have boneless butts every now and then available. i have done quite a few butts before. we just prefer beef, brisket to be precise.
edit: oh yeah, i wish they would have briskets at $0.15/lb again. i would fill up my freezer. i might go get some more of this "pork for bbq" special, and put it in the freezer.

p.s. get some fiesta fajita spice & boil a shoulder or butt down w/ garlic- add the fiesta carne spice w/ a few rotels & extra garlic & comino.. fridge until the next day ..... the best carne ....
