Quick Butt Question???

So I just picked up a 7lb butt from the Fresh Market and it has the mesh netting around it. Should I remove it and cook it like I normally do or can I leave it in place?
Thanks Jeff

    I'd remove it and hope its not holding a number of smaller pieces together.  If you remove after the cook, you will lose a lot of the bark.

  • That is exactly what I was thinking. I opened it up and it was not to bad. It is more long and skinny instead of a fat piece of meat. It also looks like it has had most of its fat trimmed. O well to late to get another. I usually get a big one and they have to open a new one and just give it to me untrimmed.

    Be sure and check for the plastic round desk on the bottom protecting the bone.

  • Hey Mickey 

    I have always done boneless Butts. Is there any reason I should go BONE IN??

  • I just noticed you are from Thomasville NC. Its nice to hear from someone local. Where do you get your meat from, are there any good butcher that you have found?
