Smoking times at a Mile High

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey there


So I'm new here and I'm in need of some advice as to the cooking times I'm experiencing in my electric smoker.  I've got two shoulder's going (9lbs and 7 lbs) and everything I've read says 1 to 1.5 hours of smoke per lb.  Started this morning at 7:30, and as of 2:30 I'm already at 180 on my digital thermometer.  Are my shoulder's cooking too fast?  I'm running at a temp of 225 in the smoker, and was expecting this to take longer that it is.  Any advice?

Matt test your thermometer if it is accurate then the next step is to make sure the probe is not in a fat pocket do this by just checking a couple places. If it still says it's done then go with it. If you want one final test grab the bone and wiggle it if it feels like it will slide right out it's done. Being that high will change things for sure but sometimes you get a cut of meat that just goes faster than it normally does that's the reason we cook to temp and not time
