Another Pork Butt time estimation

I know there have been a bunch of talk lately about estimating time and yes I'm going to cook to temp, but I'm cooking 1 10 lb bone in butt, and about a 6 pound boneless butt at the same time.

What's your best guess on time? 15 hours for the big, 9 for small?

    Depends on temp cooking at. 15 hours will be close at 250 dome temp. I did a 9.5 lb one this last weekend and it was 14 hours.

    yeah, 250-270 dome temp is what I like

    Never done two at same time that vary that much in weight. I would say waiting 3-4 hours would be close. Who knows, right?

  • That all sounds about right to me. Wait 2-3 hours the. Throw on the little one.

    Estimate long and then you can FTC if finished early-I usually see around 2 hrs/# at 250*F (+/-) on a calibrated dome for pork but each hunk is different.
