Can't give you a time but you need to cook to temp.

 165° and foil w/ a couple oz of apple juice , Cook to 200° let rest for at least an hour and then pull.

 It will work out to somewhere around  1.75 hrs per lb but some go longer some go shorter.

Thanks, I was thinking around 90min per pound!!

eman is on this one!!

 

Your 90 min/lb estimate is pretty good, but better off using internal temps.

 

You're gonna hit a "Stall", so don't panic, just let it do it's thing.

start way sooned then you need to, that way if you have a stall your fine, if you do not have a stall then double wrap in foil and towel then place in cooler till ready to pull.
