What is the rule of thumb for how many hours per pound and most commonly use temp.

    Hours per pound is hard to answer so many different factors.

    Most cook to temp, and I for one try for 200 degrees.

    1-2 hours per pound at 250 degs. dome.
  • I second that.

    I've never had it MORE than 2 hours per lb., and frequently less. But if it''s done early just foil it and towel wrap in a cooler; it keeps hot for hours. Towards the end you can even ramp up the temp to the 300s°. Probably the most forgiving piece of meat you can cook.

    Most of mine seem to be 1 1/2 hours per pound at 225 grate temp.

    As a general rule-it takes 1.5 to 2 hours per pound at a 250 degree dome.
  • I've never had it MORE than 2 hours per lb.

    I have the last two times I did butts!
    uually though it is 1.5 - 2hrs /lb
