I have a little 2.5 lbs pork butt I got on sale at the store last weekend. Any idea about how long that will take on the smoker? If i have read correct you guys foil the pork butt at 165 then how high do you take it after that? Any help would be great!

I don't foil my shoulders.
I cook small ones like you, because most of the time, it's just lunch for me. And I prefer to cook fresh shoulders than make 1 large one and vacuseal the left overs.
Usually takes me about 4-4.5 hours for a 3lb'r @ about 250.
Well I finally got around to making this little pork butt. It turned out great. I put a rub on it and it took about 6 hours. It stalled out at about 180 for what seemed like forever but then in the last hour it shoot up to 210. It tasted great and I still have some left overs for lunch.
