7 Day Dry-Aged Yorkshire Pig Boston Butt
Region: Yorkshire, UK
Shelf Life: 5 Days
The Boston Butt, or Pork Shoulder on the bone is becoming increasingly popular as a slow cook favourite. This prime pork cut offers great flavour and succulence from cooking on the bone. Naturally laced with a good level of fat content, once slowly cooked the meat just falls away from the bone and literally melts in the mouth.
The Yorkshire Pig is the world’s most popular breed. They’ve been exported to all corners of the globe due to their ability to get big quick, and provide consistent pork with strong, porky flavour. When sourcing our Yorkshires, we source hogs who are reared to maturity at a slow pace, in the great outdoors. This ensures the melting succulence when cooked, and the beautiful creamy character.
Tasting Notes: Rich, Succulent, Creamy
Boston Butt or Pork Butt is the American name given to this cut of pork that comes from the upper part of the shoulder from the front leg. Boston butt has recently found favour as the most common cut used for pulled pork, a staple of barbecue in the southern parts of the United States. In the UK, Boston butt is also known as pork shoulder on the bone, since our regular pork shoulder joint normally has the bone removed and then we roll it and tie into a joint.
