I was gonna say cook at least 2 butts.

3 butts work fine for what you want.
I normally need 2 butts to find quality chunks and peices that are up to standards. Just me.
Also, from the one you pull early, you can find some other fine areas to make slices from if you want.

What they ^^^ said.
I figured they came 2 per cryo for a reason.

I cook 3 or 4. The butts with the best money muscle gets pulled when the MM gets to the temperature that I want. I don't worry about the temperature of the rest of the butt.

I'm a rookie, but in the 3 comps I have done this year I take the butts off at 185 and foil them. I normally have them in a cooler for 1 or 2 hrs depending on how quickly they cook. They mm normally always slices and I get great chunks. The whole thing doesn't shred into pulled pork, but that isn't what I want anyways.
