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?

I've heard of people deep frying briskets. If you can do that, I don't know why you couldn't do a butt.

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.
