    Well howdy here there yall. I'm Kevin from Wichita, KS. Looking forward to makin some friends here and share good advise. We just bought our first HEAVY DUTY smoker on a trailer and I am PUMPED!!! Homemade, ultra thick wall steel, just big enough to "git ur dun". On that note, I have my first people choice competition that I will be attending in 2 weeks where everyone smokes 10 pork butts. I have no clue about the size of each one, so all I can do is guess somewhere around 5 lbs each X 10 = 50 lbs of pork. So you think about 16-18 hours for all of them at 235 degrees?

    Welcome Kevin.  Sounds like quite a rig.  Please post some pics of your new toy if you get a chance.

    Good luck at the competition.  Sounds like fun.  I'm a hot n fast smoker and a wrapper so can't help you on the timing, but someone will pipe in shortly.  Be sure to let us know the smoke went and how you did.

    Thanks! I'll get some pics posted in the next couple of days. I believe in wrapping also.
  4. Welcome to the forum. I did an 8# pork butt last weekend took about 12 hours at 225º , I'd say check the internal temp instead of trying to  time them. Do you have a place to hold them when they are ready, or just start serving.?
