Pork butt comes from the shoulder of the pig, high up where it joins the body. It’s a well-exercised muscle, so the best way to cook it is low and slow: braise, Crock Pot, roast in a low oven, an ultra-low grill or smoker. But your reward is fall-apart tender meat that’s some of the most flavorful you’ve ever tasted. Pulled pork and carnitas are two examples of just how good pork butt roast can be.
