Butt and Rubs?

Couple of butt/shoulder questions. Where can I buy a decent sized butt? The chain grocery stores around here (Kroger, farm fresh) only have small ones (6lbs) IF they have them at all. Could go to a butcher but would be pricey i think. Second - I've used dizzy dust for the butts I've done - looking for new rubs to try...suggestions?

    I ask about the size because I always see people on here posting about 8-10lb buts it seems...

    @mole351 I get mine at SAMs club. They come in the cryo bags. The ones at my grocery store are normally small 4 to 6 lb range also.

    I really like Bad Byrons Butt Rub for pork butt. Its got a realy good flavor

    Ive done 6-7lbs and ones over 10 and i dont see much difference other than the amout of time taking to cook them

    As above, with butts the different sizes really don't have an impact on the ease of cook or flavor.  Mainly just time to finish.  I can usually find 6-9 # ones at the Kroger chain around Louisville, KY.
