Smoking Pork Butt

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm smoking 4 butts today at the same time in my Masterbuilt electric smoker. Any thoughts on how long the smoking will take? I've done 2 at a time but never 4 and wasn't sure if it would take longer? Thanks and I'm excited to join this forum and learn from the best guys here.

As long as you can keep your smoker temps up to your setting, I would say 4 shouldn't take more than an hour longer than 2.

 

However lets not forget that every Butt is different. You could have one Butt take longer than 4 butts.

 

Like we say---Cook to internal temp, and they'll be done when they're done.

 

BTW: Welcome to SMF, and stop in at "Roll Call", and introduce yourself, so everyone can properly welcome you.

Got any pics? Sounds like a lot of tasty pork! If you haven't tried a finishing sauce use the search feature to check some out they can add depths of flavor and some moisture if needed! Good luck!
