Meaty Matters: Pork Butt

Boston butt or pork butt is actually cut from the top portion of the shoulder; it doesn't come from the back end of the hog at all.  It's name dates back to colonial times - butchers packed the cut into "butt" barrels for transport.

Pork butt is fairly inexpensive and deliciously marbled; it's best cooked low and slow, so braising, stewing, and barbecuing are your best bets.  Try it for pulled pork sandwiches for your next summer cookout.
