Pork butt owes its name to the vessel (called a "butt") used to store the meat during transportation in colonial times. The most popular style came from Boston. Hence, the term "Boston Butt" was born. This is the shoulder of the animal. With higher levels of inter-muscular fat and connective tissue, pork shoulder is best suited to low and slow cooking styles.
