Question on pork butt timing

I have 12 lbs of pork butt injected, rubbed, and wrapped in the refrigerator. Thing is, it's actually 2 6-pounders that came in the same package. Should I estimate my timing based on 9 hours or 18? That's 1.5 x 6 vs 1.5 x 12. I won't be stopping until I hit 190 or 195 internal temp, but I need to gauge my start time. I'm thinking 2 6-pounders take the same time as 1, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

    They will take a little longer than one but only like an hour in total. That's just because you are adding more cold mass.

    You are correct. Two butts cook the same as one.

  • Thanks, guys...I was hoping it wouldn't be the. 18. I can see it adding a little time to the 6-pound timeframe, but I did I want it doubled. Time for another beer...great weather in Chicagoland for smokin butt.

  • Any weather IMO is good weather for smoking butt. Ok, maybe not during a winter blizzard, but that's about it.
