pork butt

I have a 3.4 lb. pork butt ($1.99 a lb., said bone in but the bone has been removed) I put BlueSmokes Gilded Splinter rub on it then covered it with an enhanced sweet & hot mustard mixture. It's in the fridge for at least overnight, maybe two. Will smoke with pecan chunks(dry,not soaked). I plan on using Mickey T's rings and smoking at about 240° to 250°.[p]I don't care how long it takes to cook but can anyone estimate the shortest cooking time in case it turns out to be a turbo butt???????? [p]Thanks,
New Bob[p]


  • New Bob,
    I'd lower the temp to 225 max, and cook it at least 12 hrs.[p]Best guess for shortest cook:[p]10 hours 14 minutes, 28.4 seconds. :)

    New Bob, 3 pounds? Shortest time might be about 5 hours. Now that this is so late, how long did it take?
