Whichever size doesn't make her jeans look big.... PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif.

I like the 7-8 lbs. because I can usually cook them in about 6 to 8 hrs., unless I get one with a bad stall.

I picked 9 pound an bigger cause most of em er fer the business. Personal use 7 pounders er nice cause they go a bit quicker.

Bigger ones tend ta have a tad more fat then them smaller ones which helps with the flavour an juice.

I have cooked, what I think is a medium sized butt. I want to try my hand at something a little bigger. I want to try a 15 pounder. Because of the loss during the smoke & the things you can do with the leftovers. Interesting thread. Made me laugh & almost post a pic that I am sure would've been removed.

With all the threads about rubbing and injecting you pick this one to slip into the gutter? Seriously?

Anyway, I said 9 and up, because the bigger ones tend to be the ones that have less of the fat cap trimmed off. It's important when you smoke cap-down.

I tend to get the Sam's Club double pack, which usually averages about 8 to 9 pounds each. I havent done one by itself, and the size is usually right for what we do with it. Some gets eaten during the pulling process, some gets frozen for future use, most of the "scraps" get re-used in the Butt Beans (http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ght=butt+beans)

As for the other... any butt is good butt!

"Now that's just funny stuff right there, I don't care who you are"

Phil, I have often thought the same thing myself... there are a thousand innuendos in the smoking world and I have been tempted... icon_mrgreen.gif
