anyone ever see this stuff? i went to my big grogery store today, to get another meat thermometer, and some meat and stuff to smoke. all the packer briskets looked like crap to me, so i check out the pork. they had "boston butt roast for bbq", $0.99/lb. so i bought one. looked good, not alot of fat on the outside. got home, and fixed up the dozen ABT's i had bought stuff to make, laid out the two fatties that were on the agenda (1 sage and 1 hot). open up the "butt" to apply my rub, and low and behold, it is sliced up. it was in a cryovac package. i get out my receipt, and it says "pork trimmings". i am like, "wtf?". i have never seen this before. i thought the trimmings is what they made sausage out of. anyway, it is in the smoker right now. i pulled out the ABT's awhile ago- already ate half of them. the fatties come out soon, and the "butt" comes out right after they do. i put the "butt" in a small aluminum roasting pan, as i didn't feel like it would be a good idea to lay it all right on the rack. i sprinkled my rub all over it, along with a seeded and diced up jalapeno. i mopped it also. i am going to let it rest all night, and see what i need to do to it to eat it (pull it, slice it up better). pics tomorrow; i will reply to this post with the pics, and i have a decent pic of the TBS.
