Last week, I did my first overniter as some of you may recall, and tonight I plan to do something similar. Here's the scoop:
I have 2 butts this time,
the left one weighing 5.5 lbs and the right at 4.5 lbs. I want to try to turbo them slightly and stabilize at 275. I read in an earlier post this year of someone (sorry, can't find print out) who had a butt that weighed 6.68 and he cooked it at 275. On by 8:00am and off by 3:30pm. That's just over an hr a lb. My questions for the eggsperts are these:
Do I calculate my total time eggin as a total weight of the two butts? (i.e.- 10 lbs @ 275 for 10-13 hrs?) Or do I cook them and calculate time based on individual weights? (I.e.- 5.5 lb'er for 7 hrs.or so and slightly less than that for the 4.5 lb'er)
Would love any and all input. Want butts on egg around 8-9pm.
Here's my outdoor setup:
