Where to buy whole pork butt (bone-in)?
I am looking for a whole pork butt, bone-in, to cook up for the family xmas party. I will be slow-cooking it on my Primo BBQ (cue country music from the south here!). Would appreciate recommendations of where I can find such a beast in Montreal area.
Frutta Si on Shevchenko in Lasalle always has them (shoulder) as well as the leg. Usually around $1.70/lb, sometimes on sale for 99c/lb. Made a Christmas BBQed leg from here last year. Sure was bleak at 5:00am December 25th - santa had come and gone long before, leaving only blowing winds and a mean looking sky.
Dinner was worth it though (pict).
I assume that you are talking a$$ (hind leg, ham) and not Boston butt/shoulder.
I've purchased from both Claude & Henri (Atwater Market; actually purchased shoulder, they laughed when I said I needed 20 kg) and from the boucher in the Fruiterie 440 on Taschereau (forget the name). You can also try Asian grocers, and all will require a little bit of lead time.
MMMMmmm! That smells like pulled pork! I usually buy my Butts at Boucherie L'entrecote on Boul Tashereau cause I'm on the south shore. The price is ok 1.99$ / lbs. Usually I can get butts of 10#. You can also try Charcuterie Noel on Leger & Lacordaire, I think they are cheaper. Tell me what you find, I'm also into southern BBQ. I'm always looking for good pork!
