We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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:
