Product Description

Pork butt is an on the bone slow roasting/barbecue joint, which our butchers take from the front shoulders of our local Staffordshire and Shropshire British pigs. It is widely regarded (particularly in the USA, where it is known as a Boston Butt) as the best joint for pulled pork, as the shoulderblade bone is left in (other bones are removed), which helps evenly distribute heat while cooking. This ensures low temperatures can be held for lengthy periods of time, which breaks down the well marbled meat into melt in the mouth, delicious meals. An increasingly popular joint due to it's use by smokehouses and bbq lovers.

What to do with Whole Pork Butt

If you've got a smoker, then this is the cut of pork for you. If you're looking to cook pulled pork at home the trick is to cook low and slow for around 6 hours, then use 2 forks to shred the pork into small chunky pieces. Check out our Pulled Pork with Beans, Paprika and Treacle Recipe, available on the blog, for more information.
