    Shamrock foods just opened a restuarant supply style store on the NE corner of I-17 and Indian school. I recently purchased a package of 2 bone in pork butts for .69 a lb. they where frozen at time of purchase, thawed and put on my traeger grill low and slow, they were outstanding! BTW they are open to the public.

    Fry's, Sam's Club, Costco... they're all ok. For the real deal, make a phone call to The Pork Shop and take the drive out there; they're worth it. They only serve pork, after all. If you don't want to take the drive all the way out there, Sprout's will custom cut for you. I really like the baby back ribs with the loin attached, and Sprout's will oblige every time.

    I guess I will have to answer the question myself, I am going to check out a few places this weekend and see what I find.

    I would say cook all three, then pull it and vac seal and freeze the part you don't need right away. It will thaw and be ready to eat very quickly in the future and very few if any will know it was ever frozen.

    I am not a member of Sam's Club and I agree the Costco supply is consistent, and I have used their butts for sausage, but rarely need three at one time. I would like to avoid freezing.

    I've bought all my butts as Sam's - packages of 2 typically $1.98/lb. Maybe I should get a case...how many are in a case usually Dewesq55? Any tips on thawing in the refrigerator?

    Costco or Sam's club is your best bet. Sam's club their butts come in two packs. You can always freeze the extras and cook a later date.

    Pork Butt source in Phoenix

    I have not had much luck finding a consistent supply of quality pork butts and I am interested to know if anyone has a good source. I have used the following with the issues noted:

    Food City: The quality of the meat does not seem great, pale in color, and inconsistent butchering
    Frys: Injected meat
    Sprouts: Inconsistent butchering, generally only have small boneless sections
    Lee Lee market: They had great full size bone in butts, but stocking was not consistent
    Whole Foods: Expensive
    Pork Shop: Great meat, but 1 hour + drive for me.
    Costco: Good boneless butts, but you have to buy three
    Meat shop: I have not tried their butts, and the pork I have tried was good, but they are expensive and I have experienced inconsistent butchering.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
