Default Costco's pork shoulder 2 pack

Good deal? About 7 1/2 lb each

I think i'm done buying the Tyson enhanced at the grocery but my butcher sells bone in butt for like 1.80.

Good deal, yes. Bone in, no. I prefer the bone in type and they don't carry it.

Hmmm.... I forgot to look at the price per lb on the 2 pack, i might as well do the butcher butt if they're 1.85. Just want to get away from the enhanced for a while.

They're 1.85 around here but I think it should be about the same there too. I'd do butcher for $1.85 for sure. I actually even paid 2.99/lb from a butcher but didn't notice a difference so I stick with Costco or Sams on pork butts.

I'd ask the Costco meat dept. guy. I didn't see bone in butts, and asked, he brought me out a two pack, great marbling.

I cooked them once... Good meat, but kind of a pain in the ass. Once you get them out of the cryovak you get to see the butcher job they did to remove the bone, and you get to play the "put Humpty Dumpty back together again" game with a quarter mile of butcher string. I would buy them for sausage, but prolly not for pulled pork if I had other options.

These are great for making Buckboard Bacon as well.

For Bacon or for Pulled Pork Netting makes the easy task of putting it back together for smoking. No need to tie..

Ah...just thinking of using it for BB bacon. Great idea for the netting. Where would you buy that netting at?

Split a case with someone.. Sam's club here dropped the price from 1.69/lb for 2 pack to 1.39/lb for case.

They have "bone in" 2 packs at the Costco business centers if you have one near you, they are good deal and quality.

I recently got a two butt pack from my local butcher. The label was Members Mark. Cost me an extra $.30/lb. too. Oh well, saved me the 30 mile round trip to SAMs.
