We are throwing an anniversary party for my parents and somehow the RSVPs have reached 100 (don't ask!). I have a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker, 30" version.
If we can fit 4 9lb pork butts in there, that would be fantastic. Just wondering though... as I have never smoked that quantity at once...
- Will we have issues with getting it to come up to temp?
- How much time should I allow? 1.5 hours per lb is the rule of thumb I have heard, and that would mean 4.5 days, so that's why I'm really wondering if it's even possible to do.
- What temperature should I cook it at?
- If this is crazy, and we just drop it to 2 pork butts (18 lbs in the smoker, do the rest in the oven), same questions apply (time, temp, etc.)
Any advice or other tips would be greatly appreciated!
