That may work, but I would inject with Chris Lilly's concoction before I tried butterflying my butt.

Either way should work just fine. You can also sprinkle a little rub mixture to the meat after you pull it.

You could butter fly the pork butt, but I personally would inject before cooking. After you pull the pork I would use a finishing sauce or finishing rub to introduce more flavor.

I personally use an eastern carolina vinegar dip to finish off pulled pork. I'll hand pull the pork and add just a little bit of the vinegar dip into the meat and lightly toss it. This will make the pork really sing.

If you are making PP you can sprinkle a little of your rub in when you pull it and hit it with a little vinegar pepper sauce. That will wake up the flavor.

I've always wondered about butterflying it just to increase cooking time. But i'm scared to do it, since the long cook is what makes things tender

I attended a class taught by the Baron of BBQ Paul Kirk last week and one of his tips involved butterflying your butts. The reason he does this is to create a larger bark surface. More bark = more flavor. Make sense. I have yet to try it.
Vegan is actually an ancient native american word. It translates into "Bad Hunter"
