The best pork butt to buy is one that is about 3-4 pounds in size, one that is fattier, than leaner. If you need more meat than this you can buy 2 roasts and cook them together, rather than buying a large piece of meat. 

Don’t rush the cooking time, cook the roast slowly for a more tender piece of meat.

Make sure to rest the meat when it comes out of the oven so that the meat will not lose its juices when it gets cut or sliced.

Storing: It’s easy to store your pork butt in the refrigerator. Just put it in an airtight container, so that it stays fresh for 4-5 days. 

Reheating: To reheat your pork butt, place it in a non-stick frying pan on the stove and heat on medium heat for 5 minutes, or so, moving it around the pan so that it does not stick. Heating it in the microwave for a minute or two is also another good option.

Freezing: If you wrap your pork butt properly in an airtight container inside a plastic ziploc bag, your meat will freeze well and stay fresh for about 3 months.
