Other than this being against the current rule, what is the advantage in doing this? As a judge I focus more on the pulled or chunked meat. If I wanted a slice of pork, I would go judge a pork loin comp. I see the inclusion of MM more as a statement that the cook knows the parts of the butt. Personally I don't find the taste to be that great.
