Pork Shoulder Cook Time

Recommended Posts

Are there any rule-of-thumb average cook times for a pork butt?  I intend to smoke a 9 pounder and am trying to get a handle on how long it will take at 225* on the Akorn.  I'll be using my Auber so I should have consitent temps overnight.

 

If anyone could provide a cook duration estimate based on expierience I'd appreciate it.

No hard and fast rule - but when I have time, I usually start preparing a full 24 hours ahead of meal time.  Wash and rub, stabilize the cooker, put her on.

 

With no foil wrapping and constant 225 (I use a partyq) I've cooked an 8lb or so butt for as long as 20 hours and as short as 16.

 

If you wrap in foil about an hour into the stall (160F or so?), that time can be shortened considerably.  8-10 hours?

 

your mileage may vary.

The 9 pounder I did for Labor Day took about 7 hours at 300°F to 185°F. I didn't want pulled pork, I wanted to slice some of it so I didn't take it up to 195°, I think 205° is the best temp for a picnic shoulder due to bone shape and connective tissues, while they taste as good, they don't cook as easy as a butt IMO.
