Going to play with a couple of picnics tomorrow (yeah, I know it's a Monday, but I work at home so it's not a big deal). Both were about 9 lbs before my wife trimmed the skin off while I wasn't home, and she says she trimmed a lot of the fat off as well (don't hate me... we're still getting used to this whole business). So now I'm not sure exactly how much they weight.
So I figure that I should actually put them in tonight and let the smoker do its thing overnight, but that got me thinking. Would I be better off doing them one at a time? By my calculations, at nominally 15 lbs of meat, I'm looking at around 18 hours, give or take.
And is there anything I can do about the missing fat?
