So you don't take into consideration the % fat of the actual "meat"
being put in? If you are using Boston Butt what % of fat does your
standard Butt have and how does that figure in to the equation. If you
have Butt that is 15% fat wouldn't that bump your fat to meat ratio up
to 30 - 35% range?

I hate math.
