    Give it 1½ - 2 hours per lb. @ 250º. That will give you a little time for a rest in the cooler.

    205º IT for pulled pork

    I would pull at IT of 200º - 205º, Double wrap in foil, wrap with a towel and place in a cooler for 1 hour.

    Look on the smf for Jeffs big mistake on pork shoulder.If you can`t find it he smoked it for six hr.  at 250 double wrapped it in foil then to the oven on 230 till the internal temp.  of 205.Take out of the oven and leave wrapped for two hr. or untill temp. is around 160.The meat will fall off the bone.Keep the juice .I put it in the fridge and when it cooled skimed the fat off and reheated the juice and poured over the pulled meat.Best I ever had.
