thawing butts question
I did the quick google search at the bottom but nothing came up about it but I've got a 2 pack of Smithfield butts about 7-8lbs each frozen from before New Years that I want to thaw out & smoke this weekend. What's the best way to be sure they're done thawing by Sat/Sun? Water bath or just in fridge or mix of both ways? I've always done my butts within a day or so of buying but got sick so I stuck them in the freezer w/o opening the pack up. I stuck them in the freezer on the 29th w/ an exp date of Jan4th so assume I'll be good as far as expiration provided they were good to begin w/ anyway.
