Smoking a 3 lb pulled pork in an electric smoker. What temp do I cook at and what internal temp do I need to hit to be able to pull it?

Smoke it between 225-250,many go higher but I would stay lower on the small chunk. Around 200-205 IT is great for pulling. Real problem is minus shrinkage and waste your not gonna have much left over if any which is what a pork butt is all about if you ask me!

Not sure never cooked one so small and just tug on the bone as its getting close to 200. If I was to guess 3-8 hours,nothing like a ball park estimate!
