Default Boneless Pork Butt

Quick question: Do you guys ever use boneless pork butt (as opposed to bone-in)? I only used it once and I didn't like it because it required the extra step of trussing it up and I still didn't care for the shape as much as bone-in, so it's been bone-in ever since. But I'm a Costco guy, and theirs are always boneless (at least around here), so I'm half tempted to give it another go and save some money. Any thoughts?

I've done a few - trussed some (really not a big pain to do) and cooked some "un-trussed/spread out /all relaxed like. Not sure where not liking the shape comes in-my pork ends up sliced, chunked or shredded before I eat it anyway.

If you like a lot of bark, then cooking it un-trussed works pretty well.

Do it. It doesn't make any difference as far as results go.

I get boneless butts from GFS. I like them actually. No real difference. I put them on like they were boned, meaning I make sure they're not spread out. Cooks amazing! [emoji4]

I have a rib rack that can fit the two Costco butts perfectly together. No trussing needed. It's a little tight at first, but they shrink up fine and I get bark all over.

Explain the uncle truss method?

Is there a YouTube vid of that anywhere?

Light it up and throw a pork butt on, the bone means nothing...
