    If buying pork butts from Costco they are boneless and need to be tied to cook them evenly.

    OP it looks good, what is the total weight of the 4?  How many folks are you planning on feeding?

    Good luck with the party!

    Not sure of the total weight, I never really looked.  Two packages of Costco butts ( two per package ).  We have about 60 people to feed and about 1/3 of those are kids.

    What kind of sauce are you planning on serving?  We really like this one from Dr BBQ:

    1 c vinegar
    2/3 C catsup

    1 t Worcestershire

    t red pepper flakes
    In a small saucepan mix together the vinegar, catsup, sugar, salt, Worcestershire and pepper
    flakes. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes stirring to blend.
    Makes about two cups
