It shouldn't affect the time enough to notice given the overall length of the smoke. Basically it only takes a little longer in the beginning because your introducing more cold meat into the smoker so it takes a little longer to recover
In my el cheapo char-broil vertical charcoal smoker I did 2 butts at one time and they seemed to still average about 1 1/2 hrs per lb. I kept smoker around 250 and both butts were close to same size and weight, I did 2 6.5 butts and they took about 9 hrs for both.
