My cousin recently got an account at a restaurant wholesale store. He picked me up a pork butt for $1.04 lb. I told him I needed between 18-20# for a smoke on Sunday. Well he came home with a 19.46# bone in Butt. After some quick rough calculatin' it would take around 29 hrs to smoke this bad boy. I have done many many butts in the past, but none this big. I want to cut it in half to smoke, but have never tried that before. I don't really see a problem doing it, just thought I would run it past you all. Sorry I have been away for awhile. I have not smoked anything in nearly 8 months!! I am going thru TBS withdrawl.
