Boston Butt Help needed

I left town on Wednesday afternoon for the Christmas at the in-laws. I forgot to take about 17lbs of Boston Butt out of the freezer before leaving town on Wednesday. I got back home at about 6:00 tonight (Friday)and took them out of the freezer. I am suppose to have these butts ready for consumption by 3:00 on Sunday afternoon. Is there any way these will be thawed in time to put them on the egg and cooked by 3:00 on Sunday?

    Put them in a sink full of cold (i.e. < 40*) water early tomorrow morning. They'll get close to thawed by tomorrow evening and you can put them on then.

    You can put them on partially frozen and they'll still cook up fine. You may need to bump the temps a little toward the end to get them done.

    Being they don't cost that much just toss them back in the freezer and pick up 2 more tomorrow

    Thats exactly what I would do too. If I had the money I would buy two more butts and leave the frozens in the freezer. If not then Im certain Fidels method will suffice.
