Is this what most of the "big-time" competitiors do?

I imagine you want to slice around 185~190 versus pulled at ~195-205?

I've not competed in anything professional yet so forgive my ignorance on the subject, but it is an interesting one as I am still chasing the perfect money muscle for backyard cooking.
Yes, yes, and yes.

A lot of teams who use this method that only cook one butt, split the difference and shoot for 190-195 and just use what they can from the rest of the butt.
