I cook to 170 internal, then foil until the internal is 195 - 200 and a probe goes in with little resistance.
What about the Goat or Lamb Shoulder at 225ish, is it still 1.5 hours a pound or less?

Hmm... about the same amount of connective tissue... so I would figure on that. I really think it will be less though. Just remember... if it gets done early make sure it is wrapped tightly in foil and put it in a cooler. Use old towels to take up the extra space and it will hold for hours.

I've never done lamb on the smoker/q but I've done it on the grill and my instinct agrees with you on that it will take less than 1.5 hours/lb.

I'd be guessing if I said by how much less though.

If you mean being wrapped in foil and put in a cooler... I will say sort of!!! If I am holding it for an hour then I cook to the internal I want and don't worry about it. The juices are redistributing and I think it really helps the meat in the end.

If I am holding for longer than an hour then I will take it to just a little lower internal temp, like 5 degrees, and then put it in the cooler.

Cooking lamb on grill and smoker are quite different. Grill is almost twice as hot.

Thanks Brent, that totally answers my thoughts.

Well the butts were on sale so I stocked up. 1 was for the football game (5 people)...one for a birthday party later on in the day...and 1 I just pulled and put into individual serving sized baggies to freeze.

Cooked a 8.5 lb hotel style turkey yesterday. Did without the water pan and it came out fantastic! Perfect color like Gator's wing picture and so moist.

I am suprised how much of 4 people ate. Barely any leftover's for tonight :-(

This is my first turkey on the WSM and thought practice run before T-day was in order. Ya right, I am just a sucker for turkey and will make as much as I can.

Did a 6# pork butt and a 4# brisket to take to work for a mid shift go live thing Sunday. It was well received with everyone trying a Carolina Mustard sauce I make and loving it.

You must spend an ungodly amount on meat, Brent. :-)
