Back in the saddle - 2 butts

After an extended BGE hiatus, I did 2 5lb Costco butts yesterday.  Was great to get her fired up again.  I used a combination of Oakridge Competition and standard pork butt rubs.   I know, probably a violation of some rule, some where to combine rubs...  Meat went on at 9:15, though egg was still warming up, grill was about 170.  They finally came off around 9:00 PM, nearly 12 hours.  IT was 203, and the grill held pretty steady at 235-240.  They went through a 3 hour stall.  Overall, I was expecting about 9-10 hours, not 12.  Was extra time due to cooking two butts, not one?  Sorry, no pics - trust me - it happened.  Both turned out great!

    Innovators always violate rules...

    Your run time is right in the ball-park for the butts, given grid temp,my experience and a recent cook.  Number of butts makes no difference as long as there is an air gap between them.  Piggies have their own expectations :)
