Okay gang, 90% chance of rain tonight and tomorrow, 1/2" - 3/4" expected, finally a chance to get the charcoal glowing again. I bought two Boston Butts for pulled pork, both are labeled "Pork Boston Butt Roast", both same price, but one was fresh packaged and one was cryovac. The fresh packed looks more like the cut I expected to see, with a bone in it, the other looks somewhat similar, but no bone. Are they both the same thing?
My plan is to use a plate setter with drip pan on top, probably some apple juice for a little flavor. Both have been rubbed and put in the fridge. On the grid I plan to put the two butts, with plenty of air space around them. Any reason that would not work just fine?
I have a V rack, but would like to cook both at once and I don't know if they would fit nicely on it. I am thinking 235° for 8-10 hours (combined weight of 5.6 lbs) until internal temp hits 190-200°. Sound about right?
Thanks for your input!
