Default boston butt

I plan on smoking at 8 butt tomorrow. Would it be OK to trim most of the cap and replace it with bacon for the cook?

I'm a bacon lover, but I just don't think you could get a whole lot of flavor from it on a butt. Nothing wrong with trying it and letting us know!

I don't know,
never tried it.
It seems to me the bacon would eventually get kinda weird after a long while during the cook.
Not sure if it would work as good as the natural fat cap does.
As per above, try it and see.

Ditch the fat cap and try the bacon. Just hit it with some rub before you put the bacon on.

I would leave the Fat cap alone, unless it is excessive. I have trimmed and not trimmed, I think about a 1/4" is enough. Fat's fat!

I wrap Boston Butt shoulders, fat and all, in Pig skin and tie it all tight with cooking string. Smoke it low and slow... you end up with pulled pork more like whole roast hog.

I have wondered what wrapping in thick cut bacon would produce. Let us know, show us pictures, ship some samples.

Can't wait to hear the results! Looks good at the 4 hour mark. That bacon might make for some SERIOUS chunks of Mr. Brown....I'm thinking Pig Candy here...

If it doesn't work out, I may just do some regular pulled pork and add in chopped Pig Candy. Good farking heavens, I think I want this NOW!

I cut the cap off. After the bacon cooks up take it off and eat it or throw it in with the beans.

Looks great! Let us know how things turn out. Are you gonna slice it or pull it? And if you are gonna pull it, are you gonna mix the bacon in?

I'm going to pull it. I was going to put all the bacon in the beans but adding some to the pork once it is pulled sounds great.

I just grabed another package of bacon out of the fridg. so I will add that to the pork.
