Whole Foods in Tenleytown doesn't carry it. Need to buy it tomorrow morning so it can brine for Sunday. NWDC, preferably. THanks!

    You can find it at one of the following stores Shoppers Food Warehouse, Safeway, or Giant

      Have you checked a Shopper's or Harris Teeter? I've bought bone-in pork shoulder at both of those stores in the past, though not recently. A Latin market would be a good bet, too, if there's one in your neighborhood.

      Seems like it would be a good thing to prepare BBQ for Super Bowl Sunday, but I've seen a lot of stores featuring pre-cooked ribs this year. I guess they figure that real barbecue is a lost art.

            This morning may be too late for you tou change your choice of store - but either Union Meats or Canales' meats at eastern markets should be able too hook you up. If you don't mind
            The ride to the burbs Wegmans always stocks. Although the day before the big game I would get there ASAP.

              Thanks to all. Turns out that Whole Foods Friendship Heights had it!

              I'm ready to make that traditional Superbowl meal...Bo Ssam.

                How are you going to prepare the bone-in brined shoulder?

                  Ha HA! Love that!! I've been planning on making Bo Ssam this month for the first time, and have my eye on next weekend. I'd love to hear how it turns out and hear about your recipe. I live in Rockville and can find pork shoulder everywhere for a very good price. I've collected a few suggested recipes which are quite similar, but please share yours if you will.
