Pulled Pork
« on: April 28, 2011, 10:12:13 am »
When buying the meat for pulled pork, is it best to go with a bone-in pork butt? or boneless?

I use the bone-in pork shoulder (boston butt)

The less processing the better.

I purchased two Boneless pork Butts at costco for the first time. I ground one up for sausage making and I am going to do a pulled pork with the other. I may have to tie it up with butchers string as they kind of come apart when they take the bone out :) Either way you got a big old clod of meat ;D

I get the Costco boneless shoulders.  Without trussing they will pull apart and those small pieces tend to get pretty dry.  The advantage is that since they flatten out they cook quicker.

I always buy the shoulder with bone in.  IMHO the bone in adds a little taste that I like, and it usually is cheaper.
