    Best way to cut butt in half?

    Can anyone tell me how to go about cutting an 11 lb. Pork butt in half ,to smoke for pulled pork. Should i just cut right down the middle working around the bone, ? Then tie with twine in a uniform shape....thanks for any tips!

    I cut near the bone end and clean out that big membrane. It's more 40-60 but it works. The muscle around the bone takes a little longer to get tender anyways.

      I use a knife.

      Ok. sorry, cut so the bone is in one half. 11 lbs? From Costco? They usually don't have a bone and they are a two pack. If not. Yes I tie them up. Show us the meat!

          My thought is with a knife.
          Would be much easier than using your hand. 😳😁
