    I was in a hurry this morning when I went to pick up some pork butts for tomorrow. I didnt notice untill I opened them up to rub them down that they are a little on the small side, about 5lbs each and have almsot no fat cap. I wanted to know if there was anything more I needed to do so they dont dry out. I normaly spray them about every hour after they first 2-3. I also inject about 4oz of my spray into each.

    dont woory, small aint a bad thing, you can also put butter on it between spay'n, maybe add a little butter after you pull it.

    Buzz is right tho.....not to worry....there should be enough fat inside the butt to keep it moist along with your injection and mops.
