Stacking pork butts

Just a progress report on multiple butts on a large. Thanks to Wise One, I just stacked a third butt on top of two on the large grid. It took a little longer (20 hours), but they turned out super. I don't have a grid extender, and it's good to know you can just stack 'em up. I'm sure 4 or 5 would have worked just as well.

    uncbbq, glad it turned out fine for you, That must have been about 22-24 pounds. What did you do with all that pork?

  • uncbbq,
    I did four at one time last December. Almost 34 pounds. They came out great. More surprising, they were all cooked evenly. I think it took close to 22 hours.[p]4butts12-17-06.jpg[p]Next time I need to cook for a lot of people I won't hesitate to do four, maybe even five 8-pounders.[p]Spring "Eggs And Butts Go Together Well" Chicken

    Wise One,
    Church class party. Only two of them were eaten (31 people), but the other was sent to people having a hard time cooking right now. Now it looks like I'll be doing this every time we have a get-together. But 15 lbs. for 31 people--they held up their end, particularly considering there were multiple sides, bread, salad, and desserts. Thanks again for the encouragement.
