Adjust it like you were only smoking/cooking one three pound roast.  Another example, if you had four 10 lb pork butts in the smoker, 40 lbs of meat, you still base your times on one 10 lb roast.  For multiple pieces of the same cut of meat I always based my finish time estimates and internal temps on the smallest piece of meat, then switch my probe to next larger roast and so on if there is a big difference in size.   


Now, if you stack one on top of the other and tie them together, you base your times and IT on a 6 lb roast.
