Test size Butts
What would be the smallest size butt to smoke when testing rub formulations and injections ?
I am going to cook Thu or Fri and want to test a few different products.
I am thinking of halving two Butt roast from the grocery store or quartering a whole Butt from Sams. That should give me four three lb roasts to work with.
Is that to small ?
The cooking time should be cut considerably. I don't want to lose the full flavor of smoking for extended times. A four lb roast should cook for about 8-10 hours I would guess.
I may cut up some ribs and do the same.
Thanks for any input.
