Cutting pork butt into pieces for more bark?

I really love the "bark" part of the pork butt and find myself always wishing there were more. I am going to do another pork butt this weekend - very low and slow. Will I be screwing up if I cut the butt into 2-3 pieces so as to produce more bark? I usually cook a butt in the 8-9 pound range. Would cutting the butt into three separate 3 pound chunks affect the flavor? The tenderness?

I'm sure it would cut the cook time, which worries me that the end result may be less tender. I just really want more bark :silly:
