I was wondering if u could smoke boston butts sideways. The reason is most of the time they are 6 to 8 inches wide but only 3 in high. So u could double ur cooking capacity. Would it cook evenly

I would say, Oh hell yeah! Your cooking chamber should be even enought that that shouldn't matter.  I wouldn't stack them so tight that they are touching, and if you are loading your smoker, overall you will have a longer smoke, but the position shouldn't matter... at least it wouldn't in my smoker.
