ive been smoking a very small pork shoulder (3.5 pounds) and its taking a long time to get to 195. ive been smoking it between 225 and 250 just about the whole time, but its been on for 10 hours. does the 2 hours per pound not apply for small cuts of meat?

also, it did reach 140 in 2 hours, just stalled in the mid 140's to 50's for a long time.

anyway, are there any issues with this? its at 175 right now, but it want to take it to t least 190
