FAQs about pork butt portion roasts
Pork butt roasts are often mistakenly referred to as pork shoulder. Here are the main differences between the two cuts:
- Pork butt: A pork butt is the upper part of the pig's shoulder. This cut is thicker, has more marbling, and is usually rectangular.
- Pork shoulder: A pork shoulder is the lower part of the pig's shoulder. This cut is thinner, less marbled, and is triangular. Also called "picnic roasts," pork shoulders are usually sold with their fat cap and skin intact.
Pork butts are slightly more tender and flavorful than pork shoulders. For the most part, you can use pork butts and pork shoulders interchangeably in slow-cooked applications.
Pork butt roasts will stay fresh in your refrigerator for up to one week. You can also freeze pork butts for up to six months in a freezer-safe plastic bag, butcher paper, or freezer paper. Store leftover cooked pork butt in your refrigerator in an airtight container or plastic bag and use within one week.
As a general rule, you should purchase a half-pound of meat per person. When calculating the size roast you need, remember the uncooked pork butt weighs more than the cooked product. A pork butt can lose up to 40% of its weight during the cooking process.
