This weekend is the 4th Annual Big Apple BBQ Block Party. Yum! I can't wait. Last year 4000 lbs of pork butt was consumed. I tell you this because I think the expression "pork butt" is very amusing. What's odd is that the pork butt is not from the pig's derriere at all, but from its shoulder. Did butchers decide to call it 'butt' because they possess a seventh-grade humor level like me?
