Native Breed Pork - Half Boston Butt - 3kg

The upper part of the shoulder, bone in, from North Yorkshire native breed pork.

This is the perfect cut for making pulled pork, or just for cooking low ‘n’ slow. Great fat content in the meat and leaving the bone in helps to distribute heat evenly during cooking.


What will arrive?

The 3kg Boston butt is around half of a whole butt (photo). It will arrive with the skin on and the section of rib or neck bone intact. Many of our customers prefer this option as the bone helps retain moisture and flavour. If you would like us to remove the skin or the bone, please let us know in the notes at the checkout and we’ll do that for you


We also have available a 4kg Boston butt and a whole Boston butt


Due the vac’ packaging process that we use, for hygiene reasons, you may notice some odour when you open the bag. This is normal and should disappear when the meat has been exposed to the air for a while

Our butchers tips

The Perfect Boston Butt

When you buy Boston butt online from Grid Iron Meat, we do our very best to select one that will be perfect for low 'n' slow cooking. Whether your cooking it on a BBQ, grill, smoker or just in the oven, this will give you the pulled pork you're looking for. All our Boston butts are prepared by our butchers from native breed pork, normally Gloucester Old Spot. Being slow growing, the rare breeds we use have meat with a good fat content that adds flavour and bastes the meat during slow cooking.

Cook slowly and allow the internal temperature to get up to 86c and the collagen in the butt will break down making the meat fall away from the bone and shred easily with a pair of forks.

Our Boston Butts are most popular at around 3kg, but if you would like something larger please get in touch and we'll arrange it for you.

For a smaller joint you might like to try a pork shoulder top joint or a boned and rolled pork shoulder.
