    I've got a pork butt going now and it is boneless. I've only done a few before, and all have had bones. I know a general rule of thumb is 1.5 hrs per pound, is that boneless or bone in?

    This one has been in 7.5 hours (4#) and is at 185* with a cooking temp of 220*.

    Thx!

    Aaron, that 1.5 hrs per pound is for bone-in but I figure the same amount of time for boneless and watch my internal temps.
