boston butt

Discussion in 'Pork' started by codymcgee, Dec 19, 2009.

  1. so my dad got this big ol boston butt for mom to cook in her new slow cooker with taters and such..only problem was that she had to cut it in half to fit it in there..so she gave me the other half for the smoker. with it being cut in halfwill it have any effect on cooking it? like would it dry out or anything? also at what temp should I pull it?

    No it wont matter with it being cut in half and a far as what temp to pull- depends of if you want to slice or pull...Slice is 185-190 and pull is 200-205

    You shouldn't have any problem with it dring out cause there is still alot of fet and other things inside of the ham to keep it moist. So go smoke this thing up and lets see who's ham is taste better. Remember she's you mom.
     
  7. well I gotta say hers is pretty good. I just put mine on so we'll see
