It wasn't bad when my parents were living, cooking for 3. But then my father died and several years later my mother is gone. I used to make stuff and a lot off the extra I would take to my neighbors, but I have moved so no neighbors, at least none close to me, and with the rising costs of meat as well as every other living expense (used to get Butts for $1.19 now they are $1.69) it is not economically feasible to do this. I will occasionally take leftovers to work for co-workers, but don't want to do that all the time.I have also found it is not as good or fun to just do a 4-5# butt as to do 24#.I have resorted to making things more on the grill and in the slow cooker, same seasoning and all, just not getting the good slow smoked flavor and I have tried the cursed LS but it does not impart the same flavor, it has a purpose but not in the slow cooker with meat.So what do the rest of you do with all the extra?
