BBQ fans, brace yourselves: "Pork butt" will soon be a thing of the past.


In an effort to boost sales just ahead of the U.S. grilling season, and make shopping at the meat counter a bit easier, the pork and beef industries are retooling more than 350 names of meat cuts to give them more sizzle and consumer appeal.

"Pork butt" to become "Boston roast"

Hmmmm.

I wonder what the people of Boston think about that. :smile-new:
