    Default Pork Butt!

    A local grocery store (Schnucks) had pork butt (shoulder) on sale for
    $0.99/lb, so I had to grab a couple roasts for the freezer and one to
    cook - just could not resist that price. Tomorrow one will cook one of
    the three butts to split between myself and Spouse's friend after he
    trims/prunes the front hedges. It'll be nice to have the front yard
    looking 'purty' again, although all the leaves will soon fall - then
    it'll be time to rake (ugh!) ;>

    I intend to braise the pork butt in the oven low-n-slow for quite some
    hours, although I'm not sure about the spices and such just yet. So,
    how do fellow RFC folks like to cook their butts ???? VBG!!!!

    I've been thinking of making some Chinese barbequed pork. I saw a recipe in
    one of those Cooks Illustrated magazines, published by the America's Test
    Kitchen people.

    I simmer mine on the top of the stove in a salt and brown sugar brine.
    In the end, I'm not sure if that makes a difference. All I know is that
    I prefer pork butt eaten right after it comes off the heat, shredded
    with salt and pepper. IMO, all pork is best eaten immediately after the
    *first* cooking.
    There's lots of stuff you can do with reheated pork, but it will never
    taste as good as fresh and hot from whatever original method.

    Rub it with a whole bunch of stuff... salt, pepper, cumin, mustard
    powder, allspice, thyme, cinnamon.... let it sit for a couple hours,
    then pop in into the oven in a sealed pot at 300F for 6 hours.

    It's a good cut for making sausage. So buy a couple more for the grinder!

    My recommendation is that you cook it however you want and shred the
    meat. Fry it in a pan with a good amount of oil over medium high heat
    and then add a good amount of vinegar flavored with hot sauce or soy
    sauce or whatever you want. Crisp the pork on both sides and serve. It's
    tasty!

    Cochinita pibil, baked in the oven for 2-3 hours, then cooled and
    shredded.

    Great deal Sky! I couldn't pass that up, either. I haven't done much
    cooking on the grill this summer with all the issues. Also have to have
    the neighbor kid do the leaves because it's already time, here.

    So in other words nobody eats at your place without first doing
    chores for you?

    It's really all about the yard, isn't it - the food merely a tool to
    get the job done,

    For the same reason that people eat a roast called rump?

    Or "**** on a shingle"?

    Dude, you're just jealous that the woman next door doesn't reward *you* with a piece of butt for pruning *her* hedges.

    Never any jealousy out of me, not at this stage. Of course I was
    trying to be funny. But the truth is, that was the way her post read
    to me, the way she segued quickly from food to the lawn chores. I
    thought it was funny and I know I'm not alone. I might run an errand
    of some sort for food - do somebody a favor of some kind - but if the
    chore involves hard work or doing something I'm not good at there will
    be no deal. Pruning hedges seems like hard work to a guy like me, a
    guy for whom just getting out of bed is exercise.
