    I will be smoking two butts (pork, that is) for the first time. I know for one butt it should take between 1 and 1.5 hour per pound. If I am smoking two 8 pound butts, does that mean it is 1 to 1.5 hours for 16 pounds, or would you estimate the time as only one roast?

    should be the same if side by side.

    I agree with gypsy, they should cook in the same time as one. However, this ain't an exact science. There is the possibilty you could plateau for a longer period of time. Make sure you maintain your temps. Remember, if your lookin, you ain't cookin, so keep that door closed as much as possible.

    I will do my best not to peek!! I have a weber smoky mountain smoker and don't think I will be able to do them side by side. Would the second grate be too hot or should it be ok? Thanks again.

    heat rises so therefore the higher rack would be hotter, i'd monitor the temps & switch places as needed.
