The weekend before the fourth of July I cooked a Boston butt for the first time. I cooked it outside on a gas grill (for shame ;-) ) @ 350 deg. for four hours. We made pulled pork out of it. Everyone loved it so much that they wanted me to cook one again this weekend. This one is bigger - 12 lbs vs. the other one which was, well - about 2/3's of that size.
I think that some suggest around 30 or 45 min per pound at 350 deg. So, that would mean 6 - 9 hours for that heat level. This time I thought of cooking it at a slower flame - around 250 deg. How would this affect cooking time? Can I estimate how many hours it might take?
Any suggestions? Thanks,
