Hello Dr. BBQ:
When cooking multiple pieces of meat (e.g. two pork butts) does the cook time double? I know the rule of at least 1 hour/pound but I am not sure about when that total weight is distributed between multiple pieces of meat. Thanks.
No, the amount of time won’t double if you cook two pieces instead of one. If you have a small cooker it may increase some just because of the lack of air flow but definitely not double. Of course the time is just a guideline and those butts won’t be done until the internal temp is at least 190° and the meat is real soft.
