So, I have about a 7.5 lb pork butt (I already made all the obligatory butt jokes so I'm covered there) and its been rubbed and wrapped according to the sticky post about making pulled pork. Now saying I want to eat tomorrow at 5ish and allowing a bit of leeway in the way of it cooking oddly. About when should I throw it on the smoker?
1.5 hours per lb would put it at just over 11 hours (close to 11 1/2 hours). If I allow some rest time and assume 12 hours total for smoking and resting would that be sufficient?
I'm not aiming for exact science I just want to make sure my assumptions are correct with some verbal yes's or no's. I've done my research I'm just checking my work.
THANKS GUYS! (and gals)
I'll post pictures as soon as I get more than 2 of me making "does this counter make my butt look big" jokes to my friends (the pork was resting on a counter, it was very funny)
