Hey, everyone -
I could use some advice on cooking two butts; I have one that is 7#'s and one that is 9 1/2#'s and I want them both done for the same meal. I'm planning on a dome temp of 250 and, assuming 1.5-2 hrs per pound, for planning purposes, I'm projected cook time of 10.5-14 hrs for the 7# and 14-19 hrs for the 9#.
My question is this; should one drop both at the same time and FTC the 7#'er if/when it is done earlier than the 9#? Or, do you give the 9#'er a few hours head-start before dropping the 7#'er.
I'm guessing that when you throw a 7# hunk of meat onto the egg, the temp will very logically drop for a bit until it re-stabilizes and during that time the 9#'er will slow. That said, I was guessing I would drop both and then pull one earlier if/when it is at temp.
But, never having done two together, I was hoping for some advice/direction from you good folks.
