Hi, glad I found this forum. We recently purchased 2 boneless pork shoulders. The package says that it's almost 16lbs, so I'm guessing that they are about 7-8lbs each. We have smoked ribs in our kettle grill using charcoal and wood chips before and they turn out delicious, but this is a bigger undertaking and I want to make sure that we know what to expect. We are having company at 3pm so we want it ready by then but after reading forums, it looks like it could take about 12 hours or so. 1. how long should we figure it will take? 2. can we smoke for part of the time and then move to the oven to cook it faster? Or smoke it at a higher temp? 3. can we smoke it the day before and re-heat in the oven on party day? Does the quality/taste change? I'm not sure what else to ask. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
