what is the best way to remove the bone from a butt roast? i ordered the buckboard bacon cure, and want to make some bacon from a butt. around here you can't get boneless butts.

The Buckboard Cure will come with a good tutorial and pictures included with the curing and smoking instructions. Easy to follow and probably better than it can be explained here. It is pretty simple, no worries.

They sure are, and they are the very ones that will come w/ the cure. Good luck on the bacon Chris. It is good stuff. I seem to remember reading you don't do fat so this stuff should be right up your alley. Enjoy!

Hi Chris,

Funny you should mention this as I just smoked one yesterday that I have had curing for the last 10 days. Like everyone said the directions are in the box and it's not too hard to do.

Here is a couple of pics of mine I just finished slicing.

Smoked to 140* with apple and hickory chips



Sliced and ready to cook.


Going to go fix me some bacon and eggs in a few minutes. 8)

Good luck with yours.

Wife says it is good. I couldn't pass up a hot pork sandwich when I pulled the Butts off, so I will try the bacon later.

Good deal Chris, that is what I have used for mine so far. Costco only has de-boned butts. I'll pick a couple up for Buckboard, but only bone in from our true local grocer with a real butcher shop will do for anything else. The KC area Costco stores have some great looking quality meat. Unfortunately, getting a packer brisket or a bone in butt is virtually impossible though.

Yeah-the instructions tell you pretty straight forward how to debone the butt. Better that I could explain it and I used to do it for a living!!
