Hello all. Re-visiting the forums here to get some expert advice. I am looking at smoking two pork butts at once and needed a little knowledge. I have smoked pork butts before, but never two at once. I am using a MES 30" electric smoker and a AMNPS. My pork butts in the past have ranged from 6 to 7.5 lbs and take anywhere from 14-20 hours (depending on how cold the nights get.) I usually smoke them at around 235* and wait until the IT is 200*-204*.
When smoking two pork butts at the same time, is this going to really increase my cook time? If so, how much can I expect? A few hours or more than that? Is it safe to say they both should get to the ideal IT at the same time (assuming they are close to the same weight)? Thanks for any feedback.
