Smoke Times Question

Postby shirleyallen » Mon May 09, 2022 4:06 am

I have 2x 3 lbs pork shoulder roasts, approx 2-3" thick. How long will it need to cook at 225F? I plan to wrap it at 160F. I have read anywhere between 60-120 min per pound. I think because the roasts are relatively thin and flat, maybe 90 min per pound, so 4:30?
I am also smoking 2 whole spatchcocked chickens. 3 to 4 hours?

4.5 hours sounds about right for that size and weight. Cook to temp and not to time. Using a cooler to rest the pork in will give you a lot of flexibility on the time1,2 or even 3 hours rest in a decent cooler will still have the meat steaming hot.
To avoid the chicken skin having a rubbery feel, you will want to cook at a higher temp,300* or so. They will cook fast being spatchcocked.
I’d put the pork roasts on first at 225-250*. When they get to 150, put in a foil pain with some apple juice and cover with foil.
Increase your temp to 300 and put the chicken and the pork in. They should finish pretty close to the same time.
