Well I just got my Traeger last week and it couldn't have come at a better time because tomorrow is my son's 2nd birthday party. We will have roughly 40 guests and I thought pulled pork would be a great choice for the meal. I do have a few questions though.
My plan right now is to try and get four, 7-8 pound pork butts. Do you guys think this will be enough to feed everyone? I don't mind have extra. :)
My next question is about cook time. I've read that I should give an hour to an hour and a half cook time per pound. So will that mean 8-10 hours should work? Or since I'm cooking four at one time do I need to plan on more time.
My plan was to cook at 3 hours at 225. After that I will transfer to a foil pan, kick the heat up to 250, and cook for 6-8 more hours. The recipe I took this from was only cooking one butt. Do I need to plan on more time since I have four pork butts?
I figured getting four smaller pork butts will cut down the cook time as opposed to one, big pork butt.
I would appreciate any thoughts on this!
