Only shot I got from this weekend:

After 16 hours the 4 Butts were done. The chicken (about 4 family packs of chicken drumsticks, roughly 80 drumsticks) took about 2 hours. Chicken skin crisped up a bit, which was nice. The butts shredded themselves.

where in PA are you?

I just went out and reloaded my coal chute. Been smoking 8 butts since 11pm last night. Didn't set my alarm and the chute was out of coal. Luckily, due to the insulation, it had only droped to 180 in there. It'll get back up to temp (220) in no time. Later this morning we'll be throwing on some ribs. I'll get pics then.

I'm in Pottstown. How about yourself? I'm hoping these bad boys will be done in ~10 hours. We'll see... cooking at 225F.

Down in the Ft. Washington Area. My butts last weekend took 14 hours. They also had now bone in them. My 8 today all have the blade in them, so I'm hoping they'll go a bit quicker.

Yeah these are boneless shoulders from costco ~6lbs each. If it takes 14 hours there will be some hungry people up in arms.

milldoggy: how's it going Mike? This is Dayton from Bruclear.
