    Awesome- that will be a fun cook.  Happy birthday to your wife.  

    FYI- pretty sure that is a whole pork shoulder (the butt and the picnic).   


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yup, whole shoulder. Should be great!

  • 225 for a 20 pound butt, that will take like a work week to finish cooking. What Fun!

    Do you guys think 18-20 hours should do it? I can raise the temp at noon if it's not close? I have done several 10 pounders and they usually finish in 18 hrs

  • It's hard to say. I always cook by temp and not time.

    Based on the shape I'm not sure it will take that much longer than say a 10 lb butt.    

    This is stolen from the amazingribs site discussing times of rib roasts.  The shoulder is similar- it is basically a big tube.  Once the width is >= the height the cooking time may not vary increase based on weight (or not as much).

    I could certainly be wrong, but I don't think it is going to take double the time of a 10 lb butt.

    Tired of all the sh*t talk. I think some people spend more time on here than they do actually cooking on their Eggs.

    Don't be weak man!  It was just a lil ribbing for you trying to force feed your blog down our throats.  
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    Ok...this got a little side tracked.  I'm curious what people think.  20 lb shoulder...how long will it take?

    At 225...shoot. Maybe 16 hours. I'd roll at 250

    Damn, I've been trying to explain that for ten years. Wish I had that cause I hate typing.
