Boston Butt Question

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I will be doing my first pulled pork this weekend on the Egg (Medium) and I have a question.

I bought a 16 pounder at Sams Club. My first question is does the package have (2) 8 lb butts or is it (1) 16lb? I havent opened it yet and Im sure someone here has bought these from Sams before to know how they come packed.

My 2nd question is this. I know to allow 1.5 - 2 hours per pound of the butt. If this is in fact (2) 8 lb butts, do I judge my cook time on the size of each butt (8 lbs) or TOTAL weight of 16 lbs?

Thanks... just trying to calculate what time to start this.
