cut a large butt in half to shorten smoke time?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if it would cut down smoking time and increase the amount of bark by cutting the butts in half before placing them in the smoker? What do you guys think?

Absolutely. I do this quite a bit when pressed for time. I love the extra bark too!

Yep you sure can. I wouldn't say its going to be exactly half the time but much much less time.

Yup,

That works good, and it's not a "half-baked" idea! icon_rolleyes.gif

I cur down to big chunks sometimes, it just depends on the mood I'm in at the moment. Actually, it can make pulling/shredding easier at times. It's all good my friend.

It will cut down on your smoke some but not in half like you think.
