Depending on what temp you're going to smoke at, you should allow up to 2 hours per lb.  At 225* it will take you about  four hours to reach 205* internal temp, which is where you need to be for pulled pork.

I was figuring 225 on the temp so would i do 3 hrs and then 1hr wrapped in foil?

Foiling is a personal choice, I haven't done it with pulled pork.  I just used foil on ribs for the first time this weekend, and I'll do it again.  All I've heard is with a picnic you may soften the bark, but other than that there is no reason not to.  Good luck and good smokin'.

Thank you, for your help.

Smoke it at 225 Until your butt is 200-203 degrees. Time doesn't matter. Forget about time. Just get it to temp. Then foil it for an hour before pulling.

I'm a newb too and am glad you posted this question. We are smoking a 3 lb. boneless shoulder as I type this and your question fits perfectly with what we are doing also. Thanks.

Like hillbilly said, forget about time. Unless you're taking notes, leave your watch in the house and keep an eye on your thermometer(s).

I always end up with the big butts around 7-10 lbs with the bone.  Today was the first time I was able to serve anyone but myself fresh pulled pork.  Started at 4:30am, lol.  Pulled pork is a long smoke, no way around it using smoke.

Doesn't have to be. Pulled pork done at 275 degrees is just as good as at 225 and it gets done a lot faster.

I agree doesnt have to take all day to be smokey tender and juicy. I often cook around 280 degrees and it comes out great.


Happy smoking,

If I'm smoking quite a few butts I will smoke them @300. = 6hr
So it can be however long you want it to be.

If I tell my offset I want 225 it just chuckles. 260 to 280 is where it's happy and the PP is just as good (better because it didn't take as long!).

Yeah.... Mine really likes to run at 250-275* and I'm happy there too. I can always persuade her to cook at 225 or 300, if I really need to be there. I also use foil at the stall to save some time and add tenderness.
