Just to clarify a couple of things- this was a tv show, and no sanctioned rules applied. Just to be clear, we checked on separating the butt with the producers before we did it (very quietly though!)
Last year, the rule about the hog must be cooked whole was clearly announced to everybody before we were allowed to start prepping. Whether Craig heard it or not or it didn't strike him that cutting out the ribs were violating that I don't know, the producers thought it did. I could see it both ways. Their show, their rules. It did teach us a lesson to ask for clarification on everything and not assume any rules were in place.
