Default Two Butts for a Friend

Going to my buddy's deer camp Sunday to help with the myriad of odd jobs that need doing before AL's rifle season starts Nov17th.
Cleaning out shooting houses, raking trails and trimming brush, corn into the silo and whatever else.
So I'm smoking a couple of Butts for him since he is BBQ deprived.
And one for general purposes, which will probably get frozen for later in the season.

I am so looking forward to a day in the woods, even if it is spent working.
And more so I look forward to those cold days in a stand, tuned in and ready for a chance at nice buck.

Two boneless Butts, trimmed, rubbed and trussed, the smaller is just over 6lbs and the larger 8lbs.
Went into the smoker around 8pm Friday night, smoking at 225-250 with a mix of hickory and cherry.

Almost three hours in, IT is 122 on both.

12hrs 40mins into the cook.
Smoker has been averaging 235 +/-2.
Just now checked IT's, the smaller is 176 and the larger 170.

Wow, what a weird smoke.
After being separated by 6 +/- during the majority of the cook, these butts finished at the same temp and at the same time.
I went down to check ITs and they were both 190, and both were probe tender.
I'm putting it down to them being boneless and hence not as thick as bone-in.
But to be tender at such a low IT.

Pulled one and added some SoFlaQuer's Finishing Sauce, then bagged it for tomorrow.
The other one got cooled, vac bagged and frozen.

Tender at 190? YES!

Die if you must, but die on your home turf with your face to the wind, not in some stinking hellhole 2,000 kilometers away, among people you neither know nor care about.
