I had a bone in 9 lb pork shoulder my wife brought home to attempt pulled pork. It was a lot bigger then I wanted to smoke due to time restraints, so I read on here that you can just cut it in half and smoke them together as if they were one 4.5lber. Anyway....I did that....cut thru the bone and left it in but it took nearly 14hrs to finish them. That seems excessive, but it turned out great. Just unfortunate that we had to eat at 9pm. ha. Did I do something wrong with the timing, or was it just a stubborn chunk of meat? I cooked it at 225 on a MES30.
