Two large shoulders

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Cooking for my cigar club this weekend. The food guy was suppose to get three 5-6 pound butts. Instead he gets two 14pound shoulders. If I cook hot (250-275) how much time should I expect? I have a feeling Im going to on the smoker for 12-14 hours.

I never smoke my pork at that high of a temp I smoke in the 200-225 range and I always figure 2 hours per pound. I suspect you will be smoking for longer the 14 hours.

Even at this temp you are looking at the better part of 1 1/2 hours per pound...JJ

Thanks for the insight. I am now considering cutting them in half to reduce the mass and cook time. Any issues there?

 

I know food is done, when it's done but I can't invest 18+ hours this weekend for this cook. I'm looking for options short of buying smaller butts.
