Am planning on making pulled pork BBQ on Fri..Wanted to use a 10lb butt but could only get a 5.5 and 4.5 lber.As I recall, the cook time is dependent on the individual chunk of meat (5.5lb being the largest of the two) as opposed to the combined wt.?? Am cooking to internal temp of 195-200F but want to get a time frame for planning the start.Figure 1.5-2 hrs per lb.Questions,comments,snide remarks,any input appreciated. Thanks.

    Do not combine the weight...1.5 to 2 hrs times the 5.5 hunk of butt. @ 250 dome should reach the finished temp in approximately 10 hrs. I usually wrap in HD foil and towels in a cooler till I'm ready to serve.

  • I did a 9 lb this last weekend and it took 12 hours to finish at 200 F, my dome temp was a little high (285-295) but it turned out great.  I missed it on the up swing, kept closing the vents and the temp kept rising, had my bottom vent open 1/16 to 1/8" and top closed with just the wheel open most of the way and it held all night.  I would rather run a little hot then have to get up in the middle of the night because I chocked it back to much.
