I like big butts and I cannot lie!

Cooking a couple of Boston butts for the 4th of July.  Cooking at 225 grid at the moment.  
Cherry chunks and a handful of apple chips for smoke.  First all nighter in a while.  Hopefully this comes off okay since I have to work a few hours in the morning.

    I would separate them so you get more bark!  Bark rules!  Have fun tonight!

    Man, I didnt see this until this morning so it's too late for me but thanks for the suggestion.  Not used to doing two big ones like this.

    Butts are at 187 right now and I am about to have to leave for work.  Bumped the heat to try and push it a few more degrees before I FTC them until lunch.

    Thanks guys.  No finish pics because I had to go to work this morning.  Pulled the butts at about 187. FTC'd until lunch and they pulled apart great.  Excellent smoke flavor and great bark (even on the part where they were touching).  One thing I did different this time as an experiment was I trimmed the fat cap a little.  Resulted in a better bark than I usually get (firmer).

    Why is the shoulder called a butt anyway?  Make it more appetizing?
