What are the diferences between these? As far as I understand, they all come from the blade/shoulder section... which is best for pulled pork? Where do country ribs come from? Can someone give me the low down, please? thanks

    Animal Eater,
    Butts, shoulders and picnics all come from the front leg. Butts come from the upper half, and picnics from the lower. Country ribs are cut from the loin section. The link should help you out some. I find it useful to refer to often. The grocery stores around here will often call the same cut of meat different things.

    I like that link... Here's the one I have bookmarked for whenever anyone asks. Between the two, I'm sure the Animal Eater will be able to figure out just what tasty bits of Animal they're Eatin'!
