On the beer timer method.
If the food will cook quicker than you can drink one beer, then you shouldn't be drinking while cooking that dish because it sounds like it might take two hands.

If it will take longer than a twelve pack, then you shouldn't be drinking err I mean cooking alone!PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif

I know I ask for a time as a guide.. If on average you can smoke a bird in 2.5 hours I know when to toss it on the Q and how to plan other food.
But I know that the bird is not done till it hits temp.
I.m sure most folks are looking for a guide.

And when it comes to a brisket? A case??? No wonder so many of us LOVE cooking a brisket.PDT_Armataz_01_30.gif

Rich your rant is on the money though. They preach the same thing in school (culinary) its done when its done and not a moment sooner or later.

That is truly the beauty of the cooler. You have an EASY 2 hours to do sides. Or whatever.

When it comes to the time spent to do BBQ right......I suffer for my BBQ.

Everything else gets put on hold and my family that loves the results understands that completely.

Bottom line is that there are too many variables to say how long a smoke will take.....the sooner a person embraces that truism....the sooner they will master their BBQ skills. Patience isn't just a virtue....it's a necessary ingredient in great BBQ.

Yesterdays smoke started at 10:30am with an outside temp in the low 30's and ended at 10:00pm by putting the two shoulders into the cooler to rest over night. Got up at 5:00am and had everyone who was up with me was sampling some truly awesome (and still piping hot) pulled pork.

No schedule...no rush...no worries.

That's why when I smoke, I stay close to my Jack D. It takes up much less space as long as the ice stash holds out!
