1.5 lbs of pork butt (not smoked)

Any suggestions for an alternative way to cook some pork butt other than smoking it for pulled pork? The large butt I bought this weekend was boneless, and a big chunk of it was loose, so I decided to freeze it and figure out what to do with it later. Stew? Save it to grind up for sausage? All suggestions welcome.

    You could smoke/cook it to the 170 ball park and slice it.[p]H

    Cornbread Willy,
    I like making buckboard bacon out of mine. All of my neighbors and relatives are constanly asking for more. It makes great great BLTs without all the fat.
