I once asked for pork butt at the meat counter of a chain grocery in Champaign. The person behind the counter looked at me like I was an idiot, like I was asking for the actual buttocks of a pig, and not a cut of meat from its shoulder. Last weekend I asked for pork butt at Old Time Meat and Deli Shoppe on Neil Street in Champaign. The man working behind the counter responded with, “And how big do you need that?” “About four pounds,” I replied.
Jess checks out the options at Old Time Meat and Deli and find that it has all you'll need for a Memorial Day cook-out.
