    Hi all! Betty from NJ here. Just seasoned my smoke hollow electric smoker. Ready to get started. Pork shoulder 6 lbs will be my first attempt. How long will this take? I've read several times from 40mins per lb. to 10-12. Hours. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Betty welcome to SMF!
    I don't have a electric smoker. But what temp are you planning on smoking at?
    Also are you planning on wrapping your shoulder?
    Knowing that would help a little. Also some pieces of meat is different as far as cooking. Every once in awhile you get a stubborn one.

    I don't plan on wrapping the shoulder. From what I'm reading 225 or so for temp. Thank you!

    Glad to have you with us!

    Figure 2 hours per pound at 225 for a ballpark time.

    Cook to 205 IT for pulling.
