I always figure 1 1/2-2 hours per pound of butt.
This also works for brisket.
I normally cook at 250 degrees.

so 12 hrs or 24 do you take the total weight being 13lbs which would be 226hrs or just 2 6.5lbs which would be 13hrs

It would be 9-12 hrs If you have the two butts at least an inch away from each other.

Don, are you using the temps on the surface, or as measured by the outside thermometer? Honestly, if your surface temps are around 240-260, you should
be good at 8 hours. Lower surface temps; longer time.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

I usually cook butts in the 5 to 8 pound range at around 250 F without foiling and it always takes at least 8 hours.

As has been said, 1 1/2 per pound is a good GUIDE.
Remember, though.....they're done when they're done. When the thermo goes in like BUTTAH, they're done. May be 3 or 4 hours longer than you plan on. May be 190 internal, may be at 210. Believe me, if you wait until it FEELS right, you'll not be disappointed!

GOOD LUCK and POST PRON!!!!
