    Hi, I want to cook 2 10lb Boston Pork Butts in the oven at 250 degrees. I am not sure how long I should cook the butts since I am doing 2 at the same time! Please help!

    Hello , Anna Lochas. Welcome to the SMF. Glad you stopped in and hope you get to liking it here and start BBQing with us. [​IMG]

    Please stop in at our RollCall and introduce yourself properly to the rest of the Family . [​IMG]And add your location to your Profile. Makes it easier to understand your questions.

    Now, the Butts. In an Oven, @ 250*F , you should "Braise" the Butts ( water and the addition of root vegies would make a nice sauce). Time for this "could" be as long as 15hrs. However , tracking with a Thermometer is necessary. Time is only an estimate.

    If you are going to Pull stage of 200*F Internal Temp. for Pulled Pork , track it with a thermometer that is reliable  and easy to use. A Probe type of therm. can be purchased at Walmart and is a Frugal purchase.

    If you want slicing Pork, IMHO , I would go to an Internal Temp. of 180*F , in the deepest part of the Muscle. It should slice off well and be juicy.

    Hope this helps and as always . . .
