If there is anyone still awake, or an early riser to answer this it would be great. Things have been crazy around here with kids starting school and sports for them 6 days a week. I did manage to get to the store today and bought some ribs and also 2 pork butts. The butts are boneless and ~3 1/2 lb each. I am getting ready to mix up a batch of Jeff's rub and also the sauce, those for the first time too. I will rub tonight and refrigerate, then start the smoke tomorrow morning. Does the 1 1/2 hour per pound rule apply to the butts? I know every one is different, I am just wanting to know approximately how many hours I am in for. Will be using my GOSM and am planning on about 225* - 235*. Thanks for any other tips you can give to a newbie.
