We're having a college graduation party for my daughter this Saturday and she requested pulled pork . I have four smallish butts (bone-in) ranging from 3.7# to 4.5#. These are my first bone-in butts, I've smoked a handful of boneless ones. I only have one remote digital probe (love my Maverick!) and I'm guessing it is best to monitor the temp in the smallest butt first and kinda move up the line as they hit the IT I want. Is this a good strategy or is there a better approach?
Also, I know I need my probe in the thickest part of the butt, as long as I don't touch the bone. I presume I can be close to it, however. Is that a safe assumption?
Thanks in advance for the help. I love this site!
