12# Butt - Divide into 2?


Joined Jul 4, 2014
So I just picked up a 12# pork butt from the local butcher and realize I am now facing a 18 - 24 hour smoker session.  I am not complaining but I was just wondering if I should split it into 2 6# pieces to cut the cook time down to 9 to 12 hours?  Thoughts?
