8-14 Hours. Depends on what temps you keep it at, and how cold the meat is when it hits the pit. Its done when its done. Suggest firing up a spare grill for appetizers to keep the guest happy until the pork is done. its better to get ABT, Fattys, Smoked Sausages, and Hotdogs to keep guest busy then to spend 9 hours on a butt, and pull it too early and have to chop it because its not tender.

Based on my last smoke i had one 8.2 pound butt. Make sure the butt is our of the fridge to come to room temp, ride the UDS at 275-300, if you dont open the lid and cruise at those temps then you should be done in 8-10 hours, give it extra time just in case, you will need it. Good luck and have fun.

As above, depends on a number of things like cooking temp and how much you "watch" it.
I do butts hot and fast and have them in the cooler in 5 hours - size really doesn't matter a whole lot. I cook 300-350, wrap at about 2 hours if I like the color, start checking internal at about 4 hours and put to rest in the cooler or under blankets at 195ish.
However, if I'm using my slower cooker at 250-275 then I'd expect 8-10 hours.

Same amount of time as one butt as long as they are not touching each other.

I just did the same thing last weekend, two 8 pounders on my UDS. They were done in about 9 hours. Ran around *250 and cooked them to *200 internal.

I cooked eight 8-lb boneless butts in my two UDSs this past Monday for a
wedding and they were done in five hours flat at an average temp of 325*.
I used straight Kingsford Original and no water pan or other diverter.

I wrapped them at 165*.
