Pork butt is just such a big, thick chunk of meat. I focus on getting it cooked just right, and then serve it with lots of flavors, whether it is a PP sammich, or some carnitas style tacos, or Cuban style roast with beans and plantains.

Am I alone on this?

No suit required. I completely agree. I've been working on my injections for flavor deep in the meat, but rub doesn't go far in butts. When pulling for sandwiches, tacos, whatever I'll add a little rub after.
