Default What to look for in a good pork butt?

I just picked up a pork butt on sale for $1.79/lb (sale price for Suckway grocery). I chose an 8.11lb partially because I don't know about a 12+hr cook (this will be the biggest I've ever done), but also because it was labeled bone in whole, wasn't touched with any "enhanced solutions", and because I could also clearly identify the money muscle (learned from you guys).

Some were more red then others, and this one seemed a little more pinkish but had the latest sell by date. How should I be choosing ma butts?
