I would bet you have two.  To get to 21 pounds, it would have to be an absolute beast of a pig.  They are routinely packaged two to a pack and should be closer to 10 pounds than 20.

Hog weights are up, 270+, for several reasons.  If the shoulder is whole, not cut for a butt and picnic, 21# would be normal.  It will be great!

If it's a pork shoulder primal it could be 21 lbs or more.  If it's just the butt or the picnic it will be 2.  But usually butts and picnics are labeled as such.  A lot of times the picnic is labeled picnic shoulder.  But I don't know if I have ever saw a butt just labeled shoulder.  My bet is 2 picnics.  If it is the entire primal I would break it down.  And do the butt as pulled pork or carnitas and the picnic do a Cuban marinate and rub.

Ended up being two pieces, which was better. Cooking them now, been on since 8am at 275, I have two meat thermometers and one says 110 the other says 170!  WTH, so going w 170 and wrapping now in foil.  Stupid meat thermometers!!!  Even bought a brand new one and right out of the package it doesn’t work, what a joke. Anyway, the meat is tasting amazing!!!!

Smoked two butts (one was picnic shoulder, IIRC) today with salt, pepper, and garlic granules.  Yum. I cannot wait for sammys tomorrow.  It was hard to stop sampling.  Yours look good.

I just put it on the treager without foil, had to empty the drip pan once because it was going to over flow.  I think next time I’ll do the tin foil pan to save the juices, but the bark was amazing!  After it hit 170, I wrapped completely in foil with about two cups of apple juice in each.  Pulled off around 205 I think, stupid meat thermometers suck.  But, it worked out.  I shredded, added a little more rub, Apple juice, sweet baby rays and mixed it all up.  It in a foil pan, I’ll re-heat on the treager tonight.
