View Full Version : Pork Butts

09-12-2009, 01:44 PM
So I have had a runnign debate with some family and I was wondering how Ya'll do it. Do you buy bone in or out Pork Butts? if bone i do you debone before or after?

Personaly i used to buy bone in smoke and then pull. I have tryed getting deboned butts buts but they cost quite a bit more..... (that I cant figure out since its a 2 second job...) Last time i deboned it myself rolled it up and tied it with butchers twine , which ii will be doing from now on as i felt that the smoke got deeper.

But anywho how do you all get'em?

bone in, pull bone before pulling.

bone in, pull bone before pulling.

That's how I check how done the butt is.

I like to wiggle the bone in the butt. :rolleyes:

I normally get bone in and pull it out just before pulling. However, for a number of experiments I have done where I tested a large number of variables, I bought either shoulder country style ribs or bought butts bone-in, deboned them while still raw and cut up into similar sized chunks for the test.

Bone in, I buy into the idea that the meat tastes better bone in.

Bone-in; when it slides out it's done.

Bone in. When it wiggles right out, it's done.

Too many jokes too be made.

Bone-in makes the job easy to tell when it's done. Boneless..... use it to make BB bacon!
