2.5lb Pork Butt - how long to cook?

loulilah | May 12, 2013 02:33 PM

Hello all,

I have a 2.5lb bone-in pork butt. I found a nice-looking recipe from food network: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/da...

But it calls for a 5lb butt, and my butt's quite a bit smaller ;-)

I haven't found any similar recipes that start with a high temp (500), then lowers (to 325), but I'd like to do something similar.

How long would I cook my butt using this method? Can you overcook a butt?

Thanks in advance for any advice. I'm hoping to get it in the oven tonight (and don't have time for a slow roast...).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
