I bought 2 - 8lb butts last week and smoked one and put the other one in the freezer. I am wondering what the best method would be to thaw the frozen one and how much time it will take to thaw it ? BTW : I smoked my first butt last week using Meowys basic instructions in the "sticky thread" at the top of the pork thread, and let me just say...I USED to think ribs were the embodiment of everything BBQ should be. After smoking my butt, and using the finishing sauce, I have been born again !!! My pulled pork sandwich was a true revelation from God !! It was like the perfect combination of taste and texture..with each bite being a perfect measure of BBQ flavor..Pork flavor...and the taste of the roll. Call me a convert !!
