How to Cook a Small Butt Roast

The wife even though she meant to help brought be home a small 2.5 lb bost butt roast. Its thawed out and needs to be cook but I dont want to put it in the Egg for an extended time like I would a Boston Butt. Thought I might cook it like a pork loin. Any thoughts?



  • cook it to 165 internal and then slice it. Or you could slice first then grill them and make pork steaks.
  • I cook those on the egg the same as I were doing pulled pork (a large one).

    Mustard and some heavy seasoning.

    Mike in Abita pulls at 165°, rather I like it pulled at 145° a tented rest and the meat usually keeps climbing to 150° maybe a little higher, then slice.

    For me 165° to 175° seems to dry the pork out.

    Mine always come out moist and very flavorful. If I happen not to be paying attention and the heat gets up there some, I go to pulled pork temps. If it doesn't come out pullable then I slice or cube.

    The smaller hunks can come out very good. So give it a try and let us know.
