    I just bought an 11 lb. boneless pork shoulder at Costco thinking it was one piece, and I've come to discover its cut in half. Do I smoke it for 1.5 hours x 11 lbs. or 1.5 hours for 5-6 lbs. since I have two pieces that size?

    Dumb question, but this is my first time! Thanks!

    It's figured on the largest cut so 5 or 6 lbs times 1.5 hours but many people figure closer to 2 hours to be on the safe side. Good luck with the smoke and don't forget to take some Qview

    As ,Piney says, and cook to temp. ,  no matter how long it takes  .Depends on fat content and heat in that area to melt the fatty tissues.

    Have fun and . . .
  4. There are no dumb questions. The dumb thing for someone to do is not ask when you have all these resources (members) around you. Good Luck!!!
  5. All the info you got is spot on.......smoke on!!!!
