We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Do smaller Boston butts take more than 2 hrs a lb?

I'm doing a 3 1/4 lb. Boston butt, and its I just passed the 7 hour mark, and yet the current temp is only 165. As far as the temp of my egg, its been perfectly steady at 260 the entire time (230 at the grate). I know the general rule is 2 hours a lb. for butts, but perhaps that applies to larger butts, in which they typically are on for 15 hours or more. Do smaller butts generally take longer than 2 hours a lb. since they simply aren't on as long? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
