10.5 Butt how long to smoke at 275?

    I'm in the cook to temp camp. Cook until the butt reaches 195-200° and pull. Could take 10 hours, could take 8, could take 15. Every hunk of meat has a mind of its own.

    Temp and tenderness. I us usually guess around 1.5-2 he's per pound. Start checking at 195* IT. Probes should slide in like butta. Probe several places. Can need until 205* IT.

  • The question is...will you pan and foil at the stall or not? I'm cooking a 9 lber tomorrow. I'll have it on @ 8:00, pan it @ 160 IT around ready to FTC it around 4:00 for dinner at 6:30. If you choose to not pan it, it'll take much longer. I'll let someone in that camp give you advice. Either way, good luck, have fun, enjoy!
  • I also cook @ 275 til IT of 195-205

    I take mine to 200* internal, remove and double foil. Into a cooler with towels for at least an hour - 2 is better. Hasn't failed me yet.

    if you stay at 275* or slightly above, should be about an hour per pound.  This is no foil.  The challenge is that if it runs an extra 5 -8 minutes per pound, you need an extra hour to as much as two hours, so plan ahead.  I've run it up to 310* without foil to push it over when I've been behind, but I like to stay below 290* normally.
