We butchered a hog and I have a whole pork shoulder in my MES. It was a 20 pound shoulder and I cut it in half so it would fit. It's bone in. I have cooked for 16 hours at 235 and the temp on the largest butt is 186. My question is since serving time is 7-8 hours from now about how fast will IT go from 186 to 200 at 235. I know you can't be exact but a rough time would help for planning. I have considered turning smoker temp down to 225. Thanks for your help.
