pulled pork?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am doing pulled pork for the wifes birthday on the 10th.  I am buying a 12 pound shoulder does it matter if I cut it In half to shorten the cook time?  Same flavor?  More bark peices?  Is  there  any down side to doing this?   thanks

I would think just more surface area for bark production.  It should be the same as doing 2 smaller roasts.  Don't know how much time you'll save, though.  What's the rush?

Still new myself, but cutting the butt in two would mean two smaller pieces of meat.  The less thickness heat has to pass through to cook means shorter cooking times.  I don't think half of the time would apply, but two thirds to three quarters may apply.


The best thing to do is use a thermometer and cook to temp for safety and take as long as neccessary to get there.


Just my 2 cents.
