The Money Muscle

In Competition BBQ lingo, those white arrows are pointing to the ‘Money Muscles’.  They’re called that because most BBQ aficionados consider them to be the tastiest part of the pork butt, and therefore the part that helps them bring home the money in a professional BBQ contest!  It is  located on the end of the butt opposite the bone, and can be easily identified by the parallel bands of fat evenly space across the muscle.  Many competitors slice this piece for their presentation box and use the dark meat around the bone for pulling or shredding.
