I am smoking for a 50th birthday party, 13 people, 2 of which will likely not eat (small children). I plan to smoke a 12lb brisket and 1 or 2 5.5lb pork butts. That's my question, 1 or 2 pork butts? The brisket will likely be 10-11lbs by the time I'm done trimming it, and the pork butts are skin on so there is some more trimming. I'm thinking 1 pork butt will be enough for pulled pork sliders, but if I were to make 2, how well will the second one hold up if I don't shred it right away? Will it retain its moisture so I can reheat it later? Thanks in advance.
