Did you know the Boston Butt is not actually from the rear of the hog? Grill Master University explains that some of the earliest settlers of New England set up shop in Boston because it was quickly becoming a thriving port city with easy access to imported goods. Pigs were brought in via ships to the harbor. Lacking refrigeration, the pigs were butchered and the shoulder portions were stored and transported in wood barrels that were called butts. That is how the term Boston butt came to be.
The butt roast is an incredibly delicious cut of the hog. My preference is to cook it low and slow. It's a great cut to serve as barbecued pulled pork sandwiches.
