Despite what its name might indicate, the pork butt, also called the Boston butt, comes from the upper shoulder of the hog. Consisting of parts of the neck, shoulder blade and upper arm, the pork butt is a moderately tough cut of pork with a good deal of connective tissue.  Cooking this part of the hog low and slow will ensure tenderness and flavor.  Smoked butt is some of the best holiday party food.
