Stupid Question, but need help

edited 10:52AM in EggHead Forum
I have a feeling that this question my get me run off the forum, but here goes. Is a pork shoulder the same as a boston butt? I need to cook 3 of them for a party Saturday night (Ga vs Ga Tech, Go Dawgs!). I bought them at Costco and just opened them and realized that the bone had already been removed. Any advice...or just proceed as normal via Dr. BBQ's book???

    Stay the course, not a big difference, the bone adds flavor but I dont think you will notice a difference. [p]Egg Power

    I am not sure why Costco started selling boneless butts. Yeah, that's what you got. They will cook a little faster, and are not quite as good as bone in, but otherwise cook the same as Ray recommends.
    Have fun!

    Havanah Daydreamin",[p]Speaking as a teacher, there is no such thing as a stupid question. Every question is important to the "student" asking it. And that is especially true on this forum, since so many of us are still learning how to get the most out of the Egg. [I've been Egging several times a week for several years, and I do not consider myself to be a real expert.][p]So keep asking!
