My big butt

I've got a big butt. Over 6 pounds to be exact. A butt that I can't wait to rub some brown sugar on and dip in apple joice. A butt that should be mighty tasty come Saturday afternoon.

I don't think I have ever bought a pork butt before. I have bought other beef or pork roasts and just let them sit in a slow cooker all day but never a pork butt. At about 6.7 pounds it won't fit into my slow cooker so it looks like I am destined to use the oven.

I wasn't sure how I would cook this thing but I found a little recipe that seemed simple enough. Drizzle some worcestshire sauce on it and rub some brown sugar on it. Add some apple juice to the pan and let it cook. I figure it will take at least 6 hours for this thing to cook. That should mean I have some good eating for dinner.

What time is dinner Saturday, and do you need us to bring anything?

Good luck with your butt. You could roast it on the grill also.
