Smoked pork shoulder question: divide and conquer?

Chris E | Jul 3, 2007 09:58 AM

I've got a 7.5 lb. boneless pork shoulder that I'm going to smoke tomorrow, and I'm wondering if I ought to cut it in half. I'm not worried about smoking time, but it seems to me that more surface area means more bark and more smoke flavor. Are there any reasons why this is a bad idea? Will the smaller pieces end up dry? Many thanks for any tips.
