So far I've cooked 1 butt for pulled pork. It cooked for 16 hours (200* for 12 hours, 225 for 4 more), and... it... was... Spectacular! The family requested an encore for Saturday, and since there will be more people I need more meat. Which leads me to a couple noob questions. -- Will putting 16 lbs in the smoker take longer due to the larger total quantity of meat? I'm putting in a triple recipe of Dutch's beans too, sounds like I gotta try 'em -- I wanted to make two 8 pounders, but the stores only had 4 pounders, so I got 4 of them. Smaller butts will cook in less time, right? In other words, will the four 4 lb butts cook in less time than two 8 lbs butts? I know "its done when its done," I'm just trying to do some planning - dont want dinner to be done at 9 and people with small kids had to be leaving at 8. If I had to do it without advice I'd plan on 16 hours again, raise the temp sooner if they're cooking too slowly, and just keep them warm if they finish too soon. Sound reasonable? For a 5:30 dinner, what time would you put in the pig?
