Picked up a 16 pound packer yesterday to cook for tomorrow or Monday. Read thru Thirdeye's method., But could't figure out a timeline. It' looks like maybe a 12-14 hour cook with a 3-4 houcooler rest atr the end. Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

TIA, mike

    Morning Mike:

    Not sure I can help as I have a 10#er on at the moment that went on last night at 14 hours later only to about 180 internal...I'm guessing another hour or two for mine...good luck with yours!

    Have a GREAT day!
