We are planning on trying to buy a 12-14 pound pork shoulder to cook and take to a picnic on Friday, or maybe two 6-8 pounders. Since it has been a long time that we have cooked low and slow, is there anyone who can maybe give me an estimation of time for this baby to be pulled off and wrapped in foil to take with us???
Also any ideas on the method?? Pull fat cap back and apply rub then place fat cap back on or what??? Platesetter for drip pan or fire bricks???
Go Sixers!! (Sorry, couldn't resist that.)

    Get 2 6-8#ers and look for about 16-20 hrs. If it has a skin cover remove and leave the fat cap on and cook it fat cap up.. Plate setter or just a drip pan will work just fine. For drip pan turn plate setter upside down and make an aluminum drip pan to set on it and put the cooking grid on the legs.
