Doing 2 pork shoulders...

Each are 7 pounders.  Was thinking it was going to take me about 20 hrs at 250.  Any thoughts or recommendations?

    Unless they are touching, each will cook like a stand-alone shoulder and their cook times will be independent of each other and could be a few hours apart.    Just make sure your thermo(s) are calibrated and the best finish indicator is when the bone pulls clean.  250*F on the dome should give you around 1.5-2 hrs/# .  Plan to finish early and then FTC(Foil, Towels and Cooler) til ready to pull.  Enjoy the journey.

    I agree with lou... As long as the meat isn't touching to much, you will not see a big difference in cook time. I do at least two butts every time I want pulled pork.
