Pork shoulder too big

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I bought a 12#shoulder 18hr on the smoker is a issue can I cut it in half and smoke 2 6pounders?

Yes. You will get more bark on top of the faster cook.

Are any negative to that?

Not in my opinion. I did it both ways - came out perfectly.

Good thanks

I'm all for cutting it in half. Realistically, most times between work and family, we don't have the time or energy for 18-24 hour overnight smokes. I think cutting it in half actually improves the end product because like mentioned above, more tasty bark!
