you can do 'em both ways, the thought of the bone in though might impart more flavor. I started doin butts without the bone cause that's all I could get but I found em with the bone and do em that way. As long as the butt shreds the bone comes right out, it's really no big deal.

I prefer the bone in kind. They seem to cook better. Kinda like a conduction cooker. Takes the heat into the butts.

Bone in all the way! Most of the boneless butt are "butchered" badly and must be tied up with twine to cook correctly. Otherwise you'll have some very dry over cooked small pieces.

I would have to agree with that but the nice thing is that you can get those areas rubbed nicely as well. Gotta watch the temp though, you can have some dry areas. bone in is just easier

I know there are others here that like a bone in..

I'll buy either as long as they are cheap enough. The boneless ones from my local Costco seem fine. Mostly I buy bone in though.

Butt, yes bones are cool. Especially when you want to show off to non-qers. When the bone slides out easily... you get a lot of ohhs and ahhhs.

Hmm, this didn't sound safe either.
Mary mo....shes a vegetarian..she don't like meat but she sure likes the bone....
