Anyone ever tried to deep fry a Boston Butt? I have heard this was great and I want to try it. So far the only details I know are fry it in oil at 350 degrees for about 8.5 minutes per pound. Anyone have more information on how this is done?

Well, I fried a butt. It turned out great. I injected it with a cajun spice and rubbed it down with some Tony C's, heated my oil to 375 degrees and fried it to an internal temp of about 175. I will do this again.

One thing, I read that it would take about 8 minutes per pound. This is just not true, not sure of the exact weight of the butts that I cooked but they were average size and they took about 1.5 hours per butt.
