Never cooked this many butts so just wondering whether I should move them around during cook. Thanks
I'll be going back to my roots, and the roots of this site and using my 2 Bandera style smokers. They served me well years ago, when I used to cook a lot and do a lot of meats at one time for the love and hobby of it all. You'll definitely want to move them around during the cook, especially if there is a significant temp difference between areas of your cooker.
