Hi everyone. Does anyone have any advice for the following or any idea how long of a cook I will be looking towards for 6 butts ~8 lbs each and 3 picnics ~ 8 lbs each? I have a MB 40 inch extra wide propane smoker. This will fill 3 racks leaving an inch or two between the pieces. Is this too much meat? Will I have temp issues? I plan on starting the smoker around 5 PM Friday and putting the meat on at 6PM. Cooking at 225 degrees using a mix of hickory chips and apple wood chunks. Weather right now calls for low in the mid 40s with no wind. The party starts at 3:30 this Saturday and I plan on it taking about 18 hours. Start at 6PM Friday, smoke for 5 hours, then cook until temp is ~200. Hopefully this will be around 12pm Sat. Take them out, double wrap in foil and put in a preheated cooler (hot water) with blankets. This should take me down to ~170-180 in 2 hours. Start pulling and adding finishing sauce at 2:30PM and put in chaffing pans two at a time while leaving the other chaffing pans back in the smoker to keep warm. Any ideas or issues I should think about? I am new to the site and have been smoking for about 3 years off and on. Thanks for any help or insight you may have.
