Struggling with when to start these butts and approx. how long they will take and how long they can be foiled and held before pulling.
Dinner is off-site; leaving the house at 4PM; would like to eat at 5:30.
I have a 7.5 pound bone-in butt and a 4.5 pound boneless. Plan on cooking around 250.
I'm thinking of putting the big one on at midnight, go to sleep, and then put the small one on at 7AM. Of course I'm afraid that the big one will be done too soon and not hold until eatin time. I guess I could wait a bit to put it on, but I'd really like to get some actual sleep.
What would you do?
