Now, are we completely confused?? :D
Okay, here's a question for someone with a Pork Chart handy. Albertson's is promoting Pork shoulders (boneless, 3.5-6 lbs.)buy one get one free this week. Is this the Pork Butt part of the shoulder or the Picnic roast? How do you tell? I'd like to stock up but don't want the picnic. :?
