Big Bunny in Southbridge (my neck of the frontier) had the boneless sirloin roasts for $1.69/lb. Worked just fine for PP in the crock pot; would be too lean in the oven/smoker.

I've frozen finished pulled pork, too, with no problems. In fact, after cooking up the batch Friday I ended up with a total of 2 1-quart bags in the freezer, two full suppers for two already, and enough left for one or two more sandwiches.

That's a good deal, Andy. I'll have to check our grocery store here. I'm always keeping an eye out for a good...roast.

If you want something other than pulled pork, use bottled mojo, chicken broth, and water and make a Cuban pot roast. We use potatoes and carrots, occasionally yucca (which can be found in ethnic freezer area if not fresh) instead of the potatoes. Leftovers can be used to make Cuban sandwiches.

Or make a green chili stew with either potatoes or hominy.

I have some pork already cubed and cooked, just have to sear it off and make some green chili. Did that with boneless country ribs the other night when Jalfrezi Curry sounded good. I have one more serving of the curry and enough pork cubes for two servings of green chili.

Haven't tried any others, but I will say that Momofuku's pork belly recipe is the best I've ever had. This one sounds pretty good too, though I think I'd add the pickled cucumber accompaniment for the pork belly buns to this one too. Thanks for posting link!

I also have recipes for Cuban garlic roasted pork, carnitas and a slow roasted pork shoulder that are all good.

Good Deal there! I lucked up on some for .99/lb a few weeks back and stocked up.
