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?

I think it depends. If I want the bark that goes with it then I use a rub like playboys. But you can make it sing with just salt and pepper and then make it to fit your application with the final assembly. Mexican, Cuban or whatever.
