I like big butt big ole round lushes butts. I really like big butts. Oh wrong song......No I like the big butts for there will be alot of leftovers and you can always use pulled pork in almost any dish.....Just ask me for a list.
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.
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)
