    i have 2 18 lb shoulders im going to smoke in a 30in masterbuilt elec. smoker tomorrow. when i smoke just one of these it takes me approx 16 hrs to reach an internal temperature of the meat, 200 degrees, which i find pulls apart great. im just wandering how much more time i will have to smoke since im doing 2 this time. will check in the morning for any feedback. appreciate all the help. tyvm

    Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. Your smoke time will  be pretty much the same doing two as it was with one.
     
  3. I agree with Piney.  The time to cook won't be much different.  However, someone asked a similar question the other day and a good point was brought out: the pit temp will probably dip and recover slower with two than with one.  ...but once the pit recovers it's smooth sailing.

  5. Another point.

    If the internal temp of one cut is higher about half way through, switch shelfe.

    When using my GOSM that is what I experience when the meat first goes in it takes a little more time to recover temp but then things to be like when I just do one. So it's not the exact same as doing one piece of meat but it doesn't really add that much time considering the length of the smoke. In the Lang I don't notice any change at all in times but there is a lot more smoker mass to even out the temps
     
  7. You can expect to and plan on doing what Ollie suggested . Your  MES will have significantly different temperatures within the box. At least mine does. Please let us know how your MES does and the true cooking time with that much meat in it.      jted
