Title: Pork butts too cheap not to buy
Post by: Kneab on October 17, 2020, 04:49:05 AM
Went to my local Meijer and found [emoji241] butts on sale for $.99 a pound. What would you do? I  know what I  did. I bought 19 pounds. Rubbed one down with mustard and Plowboy's Yardbird and the other with mustard and Aldi's Sweet & Spicy Kansas city dry rub.
The Summit was skipped this morning and the 26er was called into action. Built a 2◊2 snake with Weber coals with lump crumbles sprinkled throughout topped with hickory chunks. Running in a counterclockwise rotation because that's what you are supposed to do with pork.

Thanks for looking.

Nice find. I love pulled pork. Unfortunately for me I just got two bad pork butts in a row.

Coleslaw would be perfect. The deli was closed when I picked these up late last night. Dinner should be around 6 [emoji6]

I've never had a bad butt.
Where were they from?

Walmart Grocery, Smithfield brand. Had to be some sort of refrigeration issue. Smelled like sulfur and stinky cheese. No slime tho.

When I see these prices at my local Meijer I have to speed up the grocery cart and turn my head the other way and then not venture back. My wife hates when I take up a freezer drawer full of pork butts lol

Looks amazing! Show us pics after smoked with that crispy mouth watering bark!

I like pork butts and I can not lie.
Our kettle brothers can't deny that.

I do the same. When they go on sale for .99 lb I buy at least 4 - 6 and put them in garage freezer.

[emoji2357]No finished pictures. I was in a hurry.
Finished up late and let them rest for a couple of hours before shredding and vacuum sealing for freezing.

I love BB pulled pork, it's one of my favorite smoked meats.

Lately I've been buying them for $.75-$.88 a pound in cryopac twin pack. I'll load up with three or four twin packs at a time.

Pork shoulder (BB) are a very versatile cut of meat. Besides pulled pork I use them for buck board bacon (cured & smoked), ground up for sausage patties and links, add-in for beef summer sausage, BB burnt ends, add 20% into ground venison, sliced into steaks and al pastor on the roti.
