    Curious to know about how long it will take for two 8 lb. shoulders to cook at 225 degrees on an electric smoker. I am looking for previous personal experiences on total cooking time. Thanks in advance.

    I would kickit up to 250 and your probably lookin at between 10 and 14 hours. I cook one for ten and if it aint got real close to 195 I foil it and throw it in the oven at 325 to finish off. They always turn out shweeeeet!

    About 10 hours. I figure on about 1 hour 15 minutes a pound at about 230-240 degrees. More important is the internal temp that you cook it to and what you want it to do. 200-205 is pulling. Ive never used an elec smoker but you should have no issue with maintaining temps....
