Pork Butt

RickUKRickUK Posts: 7
So, here i sit in UK and want a little US terminology  clearing up, Pork Butt, in the UK a Butt is the backside or i would class it as Leg Joint, am i correct in thinking what is classed on here as pork butt is a shoulder of pig with the leg boned out and skin cut off? this is what i have used prior and it works so i am just after a bit of clarification, or if someone knows the correct terminology i can say to butcher

    Pork butt is also known as Boston butt is also known as pork shoulder. 

    It looks like pork shoulder on the bone is the UK term for the bit.

    Sometimes skinless, sometimes boneless.
