2 Smaller Boneless Butts-- cooking time?

edited 5:17PM in EggHead Forum
I need to cook two 3.5 pound boneless butts for pulled pork on the 4th of July-- the store did not have any bone in larger butts. All of the butts I have cooked in the past were bone in and at least 7 pounds-- any thoughts on cooking times? The butts are currently in the fridge covered in mustard and JJ's rub. I want to eat around 5:00, and I am worried that I will put them on too soon as the larger butts take from 20 to 24 hours in my experience. Let me know what you think--

    We did the exact butt lb for lb as you are. To reach an internal temp of 200 degrees I would put them on no later than 7 or 8am. We started ours at 9:45 and never reached 200. We ate at 5:30 and our internal temp was 185. Look at the posts from last Sat. We had a lot of suggestions. Even though it didn't reach 200 it was the best tasting pork I've ever had. I am actually thinking about making another for a pool party Sat. since the rain is out and the heat is on. Good luck it will be great.

    Moke,[p]Not to worry if they cook too soon. Just preheat a cooler with a pot of boiling water. Wrap the butts in foil and then towels. Place in cooler and fill remaining space with crumpled newspaper. That meat will stay hot for hours. Have a great 4th!!! Mac
