We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

First Time Pork Shoulder

This is my first time using the forum.

I am planning on cooking 21 pounds of pork shoulder on my large egg.  It will be in 3 seperate 7 pound roasts.  Based on what I have read it should take about 14 hours if I am cooking at 250 degrees.  Can someone confirm that this is correct.

If I were to cook at 275 degrees how long would it take?

Thanks for your help.

    Every shoulder is different, but only for planning's sake count on 12-14 hrs for 7 pounders. As for making sure you get them done, cooking to temp is the only way to go. I cook mine to 198-200. I've never cooked them at 275, so no help for you there. Sorry.

    The general wisdom is to not try and time them to be done at a particular time. There's too much variation in that. Instead, err on the side of having them done, to internal temperature, early enough that they can be foil wrapped and rested in a cooler until 'game time' when you remove from the cooler, still hot, and pull. Hope that helps!
