Covered both in a basic rub (turbinado, salt, paprika, onion, garlic, chipolte powders, etc.)
The butts went on at 8:30am and kept temps at 225-245. 5 hours in at 160 IT, I wrapped them individually brought to 200 IT and into the faux cambro for 1 hour and they pulled like a dream.
It couldn't have been more tender and moist. 7 hour total smoke with 1 hour rest before pulling.
I just wanted to document cutting a butt in half to shave a decent amount of time and I probably will always do this just because I noticed no adverse affects of cutting it in half.
Anyone have a different experience doing this?
