Smoke times

I just bought an 11 lb. boneless pork shoulder at Costco thinking it was one piece, and I've come to discover its cut in half. Do I smoke it for 1.5 hours x 11 lbs. or 1.5 hours for 5-6 lbs. since I have two pieces that size?

Dumb question, but this is my first time! Thanks!

It's figured on the largest cut so 5 or 6 lbs times 1.5 hours but many people figure closer to 2 hours to be on the safe side. Good luck with the smoke and don't forget to take some Qview

As ,Piney says, and cook to temp. ,  no matter how long it takes  .Depends on fat content and heat in that area to melt the fatty tissues.

Have fun and . . .

There are no dumb questions. The dumb thing for someone to do is not ask when you have all these resources (members) around you. Good Luck!!!

Hi, I’m as new as the get here, but I did the search for smoke times. Are you saying to smoke 5 or 6 lbs cut for 10 hours?

What are you smoking? With most things we smoke to an internal temperature not a time as no two pieces of meat are the same. Even lets say 2 pork butts that both weigh 8 lbs they will not finish at the same time even when prepped the exact same way and put in the smoker at the exact same time.
