Pulled Pork - Got two rolled loin roasts....Feasible?

Monch | Feb 9, 2012 07:20 AM


A friend asked my advice as to amount and cut of meat for his pulled pork.

I told him 1/2 pound per person, as sandwiches with sides....but that's not the problem.

I advised that he go to Sam's Club as then have two-packs of shoulder/boston-butt roasts.

Unfortunately, communication went sideways and his wife picked up two large rolled loin roasts.

So, which of these two would you do?

1) Freeze the loin roasts for future use and go get the shoulders
2) Forge ahead with the loin roasts and do your damndest to augment the flavor/moisture you're losing from lack of bone and connective tissue in the shoulder?

Thanks in advance,
