Wanted to get some thoughts on bone in vs. boneless for a pork butt. In NC I picked up my meat from Costco and the butts were all boneless which was fine, I didn't think anything of it. I went to a local meat market and found a great deal on a pork shoulder and then when it was time to rub realized it was bone- in which threw me off. Fast forward: I'm now in Texas and there are some price differences (large ones) with great selection for bone in vs. boneless. Wanted to get some thoughts on bang for buck and a qualitative difference between the two. Obviously, you're paying for the bone and that's dead weight but the price per pound is cheaper. I didn't notice a big difference on finished product taste between the two but wanted some input from you guys and gals. Thanks!
