Little Pork Butt

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

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!

The time would depend on the smoker temp. As for what temp to smoke it to if your going to pull it take it to 200-205 then rest it an hour and pull it

My goal for smoker temp is always between 225 and 275. Now do I actually get that? I am still working on that part.

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.

I would foil the butt and then take it to 200*-205* and you will really like it I believe. Now if you I wouldn't run the smoker over maybe 250*.

I normally do not foils mine as I love the bark and they are very moist, but one that small I think I would, good luck and post qview

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.
