    A minor (I hope) Smoking Dilemma...

    So, I'm doing Pulled Pork for Memorial Day, and I had a 4.5 lb Blade Roast and a 2.5 butt in the freezer, and decided to do both - together. There's gotta be a difference in the cook time for a bone-in roast than for the boneless, both done at 225-250. Any thoughts when cooking them together? I'm thinking the bone-in goes on first...butt not sure.

      I know I make damn good BBQ cause my 3 dogs have NEVER said no to it. (OTOH, my 13yr old says no to just about everything, except my ribs.)

    I would also think the bone-in would go in first, but not by much. The more important factor is probably the thickness of the meat itself. I'm guessing they are pretty similar in that regard. Even if one finishes earlier than the other you can always hold them in a faux cambro. Pork forgiving enough that it won't matter if it is an extra hour or two for that, just that more tender.

      The thickness of the meat determines cook time. If they are similar thickness they should finish about the same time. Use thickness for your guesstimate as to when to put them on.

        Right! Thickness is far more important than bone.

      I'd say put them in together. The faux cambro is a great equalizer. Even if it is a hour earlier on one you can have them the FC for 4 hours.
