isnt a ham the same shoulder as a butt?
Ham is from the pigs butt - i.e. hind leg.

Boston butt/shoulder is just that -- front leg/shoulder. The butt from the Boston butt comes from the cut being at the base (or butt) of the leg - which in this case is the shoulder.

Now, are we completely confused?? :D
