which is when everyone is coming?
If not anyone near Western Mass that can feed 16 people tomorrow?

    Throw that sucker on the EGG. You will be OK. Get the temp stabilized and keep an eye on it. You may have to semi baby sit it by not letting the dome temp to drop..

    KK, Is that one chunk of meat, or total package weight? I ask because I've never seen a 16 pound butt, but I am used to "2-packs" from Sam's; total weight 14 to 16 pounds. If what you have is the latter, no problem.

    KK, Bob has made a good point.....I have never seen a butt that big but thats not to say you can`t get one.
    A chunk of pork to be pulled of that weight would take you 32 hours at least to cook.....[p]Cut her in half and your looking at 16 to 17 or so hours.....[p]Mop!
