Ok this may sound like a dumb question. I've never got a Pork Butt or Pork roast that is has the netting on it.

My first thought was take it off before smoking then I thought hmmm maybe I'll ask.

It's from the Local Locker Never frozen not Enhanced!!!

Was the bone removed? If so, you can leave it on but some debone butts to let it spread out so they have more bark. So, I think it's up to you on how you want to proceed. If it isn't deboned, I don't see a need for the netting. If it is deboned, the netting will help it keep its shape while cooking. But, as mentioned, if it is deboned and you like a lot of bark, remove the netting and apply rub and let it cook with a lot of surface area exposed.

The Bone is removed.

Thanks for the input.

I would leave it in the netting, it's probably going to fall apart if you take it off

I'd leave the netting on. I'm a fan of tying deboned roasts.

Leave the netting on... that roast is probably 3 or 4 different sized chunks rolled together. in the netting it will act (pretty much) like one whole roast and all finish at the same time. You might lose a little bark when you pull the netting off, but not much.

Does the netting have that line that runs up the back. Sorry I regressed, leave the netting on IMHO.
