Another name for pork butt?

Is there another name for pork butt? I went to super walmart and scoped the meat section and didnt see anything called pork butt.

Thanks.

Boston butt = Boston roast = pork butt roast = pork shoulder Boston butt = Boston-style shoulder = Boston shoulder = Boston-style butt = fresh pork butt

Notes: This economical, rectangular roast is the cut of choice for pulled pork barbecue, since it's marbled with enough fat to keep the meat moist while cooking. You can buy it bone-in or boneless.

Thanks Fin. Those dont sound familiar. I did see Pork Roast and Pork Loin though. I guess Pork Roast is it. I didnt see anything with the word "butt" in it.

My next smoker event (after my two briskets coming this Wed.) will be pork. Those pulled pork w/ slaw sandwiches you guys talk about sound REALLY good!

I forgot what Walmart calls their boston butt. Maybe shoulder butt. Here is a site I found awhile back.

just ask the butcher for pork shoulder or a butt section. they know what it is. The whole pork shoulder contains the butt and the picnic sections.
Both can be used for pulled pork, although a lot of people will slice
the picnic section.

There should be a button that rings a bell or buzzer...someone will come.
I promise you they'll know or find someone who does...it's not an exotic cut or anything. Sam's club certainly has em cheaper. got a membership to any big box stores?
