If we follow the current rule, once the money muscle is parted from the rest of the butt neither piece can return to the cooker. This causes two problems right away: 1) you can't bring the rest of the butt up to pulling temp; and 2) if the MM gets cold you cannot re-heat it. And we haven't even mentioned pulling, saucing and re-heating yet.
Remember, we still have lots of time to re-word, re-work or modify any rules prior to the 2014 season
. I sure wish that I had waited for the season to start before making that motion . . . at least then the the cabin fever wouldn't be so strong
