    Frozen Butts?(hey I'm sitting here)!

    O.K. all of you "it's all been frozen" folks.I'm catering a wedding this weekend,when I went to Restaurant Depot they didn't have "fresh" bone in butts only frozen.They won't be thawed by Friday night when I need to start cooking,is this a concern?

    They ought to be close though. Just plan on a couple of hours extra just in case.

      Do you have the ability to thaw (still cryovacced) in cold water for a couple of hours? If so, unwrap and apply the rub and you should be golden.

        There are a few threads on this site from people who have cooked from frozen with excellent results.
        Search is your friend, there should be a full write up on one of the threads.

          You’ll be fine. You might be surprised at how close the timing will be to one that’s thawed. Someone recently just did a frozen and thawed pork butt challenge. They both finished really close to the same time if I remember correctly.
