post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello all...icon_smile.gif New to smokin and new here. Posted this in another place then found the MES Grp..Pretty kool.. Can someone give me an estimate on time cooking 2 butts and one turkey breast at the same time(all at once) in an MES 30? I have cooked a few and they turned out good, but have not cooked them together?? My son is having an "office" dinner and wants me to do a breast.. I don't want to be late on the time?? All help will be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance...

Bownutrob,

 

     I am new to the forums but might be able to offer some advice. When I cook my pork butts I cook them for 14 hours @ 225 degrees. I have not done more than one butt at a time but I do know that it will take the bird a lot less time to cook than the pork. If you try cooking them all together I believe that you will either have two under cooked butts or one very over cooked bird. Birds are tricky in that they vary in size, I cook mine by temp not time. If you cook the bird to an internal temp of 175 degrees and let it set for 20 minutes you'll be fine.

 

By the way, I brine both my pork as well as poultry. Never have a dry bite of meat again if you brine. Sorry this doesn't answer your question exactly, hope it helps.

You can figure 1 1/2 to 2 hours per pound for the butts, smoking at 225 and taking them to 205 internal temp. The breast will take about 1/2 hour per pound at 225 to get to 165-170 degrees.
