Butt Bonanza!!

Stop&Shop markets in my area are having a sale on bone-in pork butts @ $1.99/Lb. That's a very good price for around here so I ran out and bought three and tossed them into the freezer. I'll be eating pulled pork for quite a while.

Oh, I thought maybe you had been at the beach.

Nice sale, I should check what ours are priced at.

There are other websites for that kind of butt.

Advice please Andy.

Shrek is no longer eating pork or beef. If I was able to find nicely priced Boston Butt would you suggest I carve it into to smaller roasts and freeze or cook as is and freeze? It will all be made into pulled pork with minimal seasoning.

In the past, I've done a whole Boston butt, pulled it, mixed it with a little BBQ sauce and froze it in 4 ounce packets. Easy to defrost and pop onto a bun for a quick sandwich with some more BBQ sauce. That works nicely if all you want is pulled pork. That's much easier than cooking it each time. You can season it any way you like.

Do you use a slow cooker or roast it in the oven?

And you know this how??

Excellent price, we don't usually get sales like that around here even though pork is an Iowa thing. I've done a mix of frozen ham and pork in the crockpot, turned out really good.

Thanks!

In the oven, I like the texture better. Usually rub with a little salt, cumin and chili powder, adding onions and garlic so it smells good while cooking.
