Default Butt time

Thinking about doing a couple of butts for Sunday. Going to cook at around 270 if I can keep temp up. Wondering how long it will take from start to finish. Going to wrap when I get the color I want, then put in oven to finish. Probably rest 2 hrs in cooler befor pulling. I'd rather be done early than late.

When I cook butts, they are usually around 8 pounds each. At 225 degrees, I allow 80 minutes per pound, plus a two hour rest (foil, towel, empty cooler) before pulling. At 270, I'm guessing 50-60 minutes per pound. They may be done earlier than that, and that's no problem. I wrap based on color, too, and find that internal temp is usually between 160 and 165 when they are the color I am looking for. It just works out that way. Looking forward to some pictures!

I usually cook around 275-300...takes me like 7-9 hours normally and then rest. 4-5 hours before wrap with a little apple juice, then another 3-4 tops to finish depending on what internal temp I want to pull.

Haven't got them yet, but most I get are about 8 lbs. The hour per sounds good, I'll start a little early, and if they get done sooner, so be it. Thanks for all the input, even the butt size one . LOL

I usually cook around 225 degrees and factor about 1.25 hours per pound. I would agree with ITBFQ - at 270 degrees you are probably looking at an hour per pound. Be sure to take a good temperature and feel the meat for tenderness.

At 275* and wrapping when I get the color I like (Mahogany), 8-9 pound butts usually take about 9 hours for me.

I cook it long enough to get the butt to 190 degrees then rest it like you said for a while, wrapped in a cooler. There are a lot of variables like your smoker, outside temp, wind, how many times you open to check things.

I usually cook mine around 290 until internal temp is 160 then wrap it and continue cooking until internal temp is 195. Then pull it and let it rest in a cooler wrapped.

I can usually finish an 8lb butt in 6-7 hours this way.

If you are wanting it for the game you can throw it on at 8 or 9 in the morning. Should be done by 3 then just keep it wrapped in a cooler with a towel over it. It will hold for another 2 or 3 hours that way.

Do You wrap in double foil or do you put it in disposable pan foiled with double aluminium ?

Both! When I wrap for color, I put it in a pan to keep cooking. Then, when they reach finished temp, I take them out of the pan, wrap tightly in double aluminum foil, and plop them in the cooler to rest. I like to save the juices from the pan, and use a gravy fat separator thing to pour off the fat/oil.
