    Hey all - I know it's only done when it reaches temp but, I'm cooking 2 boneless pork shoulders ( a total of 13.5 lbs) on the Chargriller smp. I usually maintain temps around 225-250. Does the rough estimate of 1.5 hrs / lb apply to the total of 13.5 lbs or to the weight of the individual pieces? Thanks for the help.

    It's the individual pieces not total.

    I'd just watch your meat thermometers....
     
  4. Like you said, 1.5 hrs per pound is usually pretty close. I usually add 1 to 2 hrs of possible stall time to my smoking plan as well, just in case. Then let it rest 2 hrs. Have fun!

  5. Oh and it's individual pieces, not total weight.
