    pork roast=pork butts

    We purchased a hog at the county fair this summer and had it cut and wrapped. Would the pork roasts be the same as the pork butts you all refer to on here? And would I cook them the same? They weigh approx. 4-5 lbs. Thanks for the help.

      Thanks Barry I reread it again to see what I had missed and I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that my 3 pork roasts were at one time the pork butt. The butcher whacked the butt into 3 pieces and labeled them roasts. If that's it, next year I will tell them I want a pork butt from half and roasts from other half. Then I can have lots of meat for a crowd or just a nice pork roast for hubby and me. Appreciate the help and info

        OTR, most "roasts" come from either the butt, blade, or picnic (together they are the front shoulder) or...they come from the loin area. My guess is if your roasts are nice & fatty they are from the butt or shoulder. If they are more lean perhaps loin (rib roast, loin roast, crown roast, etc).

          yes, I see that now. The amount of info on this site is incredible. And the friendly help from the moderators and members has made me a much better cook not to mention that it's made cooking fun again! At cow camp, I,m a whiz with a wood cook stove but this BBQ stuff has me addicted!! Thanks all
