Charlie, I believe the fatty should be 165° and the thigh should be 170°, probably around 2-3 hrs. for both, more or less!

If your gonna cook the fatties later for breakfast you could go a bit lower so they don't dry out.

figure 3 hours for the fattie at that temp, I usually do mine at 225 and it takes 3 hours.....remember flip after 1 1/2 hours........should go to 170
