History of the name and cut

It is said that in pre-revolutionary New England and into the Revolutionary War, some pork cuts (not those highly valued, or "high on the hog," like loin and ham) were packed into casks or barrels (also known as "butts") for storage and shipment. [cite news | url= | title=Here's the Rub | publisher=Boston Globe | date=May 7 2006 | author=Sheryl Julian and Julie Riven] The way the hog shoulder was cut in the Boston area became known in other regions as "Boston butt". The name "Boston butt" is not used in Boston but is used in other parts of the U.S.
