    Pork Cushion On Sale $1.15/lb @ Cash & Carry/Smart & Final

    At least it is in the Portland metro area. I grabbed one of these by mistake a few months ago, little ugly to rub, but came out great.

      First time I managed to be able to get to the pulled pork stage was on one of them. Usually I don't give myself enough time and end up with Chopped pork instead. For the price, can't beat it.

        Same price by me in WA as well, Super Cheap! I am tempted to get some and give it a try. I have never tried cushion. How does this compare taste & texture-wise to your typical shoulder/butt? Leaner or more fatty?

          I thought it came out pretty good. At least the one I had was ugly as heck, but it cooked up well, and the ugliness actually = more bark, and may have contributed it it cooking faster. Little higher surface to mass ratio.

              Google search and subsequent link gave me this:
              The "cushion" comes from the Pork Shoulder Picnic (or Arm), The picnic shoulder is more economical than the Boston Butt, but also contains more fat than the blade shoulder. When the bone and fat is trimmed from this
              cut it results in a very rich flavored roast. The meat from this cut is excellent for making juicy barbecued pulled pork. The Picnic has a large bone and joint that runs through the middle of the roast, one side has a
              large lean muscle...that is the "cushion". You can also slice and pound them for pork cutlets, stew meat, etc and use them in any chicken recipe.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                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.
