I normally do 2 and it takes about 18 hours. There wasn't much difference doing 4. I rotated them around periodically and had one hit 185 in about 17 hours, the 2nd one came off at 18 hours and the last two I left on for about 19.5, mainly because I was eating by then and just let them keep cooking. I have a digital thermometer with 2 probes, so I would swap them around every 2-3 hours. When the ones closest to the fire would get 10 or more degrees ahead of the others, I'd rotate the shoulders around on the smoker. It wasn't a lot different from doing 2.
