Careful what you ask for...
I went to a local butcher shop and asked for a whole untrimmed pork shoulder yesterday. They didn't have any but he said they were getting their hogs in first thing in the morning and he would save a whole shoulder from the carcass. So I go back today thinking I'm getting about a 10-13lb shoulder. They come out with this hunk of meat I couldn't believe. It weighed 19.38 lbs and cost me about $28. I figure it is going to take about a week to cook this thing. I always wanted to try a whole shoulder so I guess I got what I asked for. I am going to cook it next month when we have family coming over. I figure I nned to bump up my allotment of beer for that cook by half a case or so. When prep it for freezing I'll take some pics.
