Joining 2 beams in a 17ft span pergola


I'm building a pergola over my existing deck. It measures 12 x 17. The longest beams I can find at HD are 16' therefore I'll have to join 2 beams in the middle post. What would be the best way to join them?

This section of the forum isn't for questions. It's for giving instructions. You'd be better served asking this in the Remodeling section.
