What are the sizes of the butts and what temperature do you plan on cooking at?
The butts are approx. 8-9 lbs a piece. I bought a case of them so they arent individually marked. But the box contained 4 pack of 2 butts each that weighed a total of about 77lbs.
How much space between butts are we talking about here? Inch, half inch, or more??? I also have a digi thermometer that goes on the grate (et-732). Im worried about that fitting on there with all the meat. any suggestions on that? shoud i just go get a cheap walmart fryer therm and put below the grate instead of using the maverick?
