Boston Butt Questions - Feeding a Crowd
I've made a few boston butts over the past year since I first bought my egg. Now, I'm looking to feed a crowd. My oldest daughter is about to graduate high school and we're throwing a graduation party in a few weeks for several dozen people. Here are my three questions.
1. How many boston butts (~7 pounds each) can I get on a Large BGE?
2. Will multiple butts affect the cook time? My worst nightmare is having a crowd gathered around the egg waiting for the internal temp to hit 195!!
3. Even when I keep the dome temp between 225 and 250, the butts (boneless) cook in about 1 hour per pound. Seems kinda quick. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance for the advice!!
