(THIS MEAT WILL ARRIVE FROZEN SO PLEASE LEAVE A COOLER WITH ICE PACKS IF YOU WON'T BE HOME!)
Boston Butt, AKA Pork Butt, from the pasture raised pigs at Simply Southern Family Farm in Franklin, GA! The ideal cut for pulled pork cooked in a smoker, Boston Butt is also an excellent choice for roasting in the oven or even cooking up in a slow cooker!
Not familiar with Pork Butt? Here’s a snippet from an article by Cook’s Magazine:
”Pork butt and pork shoulder are frequently confused—and misleadingly named—cuts of meat. Both come from the shoulder of the pig, but pork butt is higher on the foreleg, while pork shoulder is farther down. As relatively tough and fatty cuts, both benefit from long, slow cooking methods such as roasting, stewing, and braising. But the cuts are different enough that we generally prefer pork butt.
Since pork butt has more fat marbling throughout the meat and a more uniform shape, it’s the best cut for stewing and braising as well as for making fall-apart-tender pulled pork for a barbecue or for tacos. If a recipe calls for a choice between pork shoulder and pork butt, we highly recommend choosing pork butt.”
