We used to call this a pork butt. It was also known as a pork shoulder. Not to confuse anyone, the National Pork Board, the Beef Checkoff Program with the blessing of the USDA are updating the Uniform Retail Meat Identification Standards. (URMIS). The URMIS new meat labels will be used by most food retailers.This cut of pork will now be called a Boston Roast. These new labels will make it easier for us as a consumer to make our meat choices. Boulderdash! Is it just me or this makes as much sense as "Lipstick On a Pig".
