    Does anyone know how this differs from a regular pork butt? Family is coming over tomorrow and this is what they gave me to smoke. Not sure how to treat. If its the same as a pork butt I'm fine but if not could someone please help me. Thanks.

    I have only ever done bone in butts! Plan on about 1.5 to 2 hours a pound bring to around 200 internal if you plan on pulling it.. I usually run at around 230 degrees but some guys go hotter and they turn out some good Q

    Hi Rico.

    No difference except for the bone, which I prefer anyway.  Northcoast has already given good advice, I generally smoke butt @ 250*.

    Good luck!  Be sure to show and tell us how it turns out!

    Bone-in is better, imo.  Did your mother ever put an aluminum nail through the middle of a baked potato to make the center cook more evenly? Mine did. Same principle here with the bone. When your butt is done, the bone should pull out cleanly and easily.

    Either one is fine....in my experiences....the bone in butts take less time to cook.
