I have only smoked 9 to 10# butts and I found a 3.5# at the grocery store yesterday. I was wondering if I could get cooked a lot quicker that the big ones. I also have always cooked at 220 to 240 for my butts. Will it be as tender with the higher temp of 275-285. I plan to pull it at 195 to 200 degrees. I am also cooking two spatched chickens during the same session and the higher temp works for them. Anyone got any hints for success?
