here is all you need to know;
!--pit temp 225f.
2 -go to 190f internal temp. appx 45 mins/lb.
3-put them in a cooler for 30 mins before pulling.
those are the basics. doesn't mater if your smoker is gas,charcoal or pellets.


45 minutes per pound at 225 for a whole shoulder (butt & picnic) sounds a bit optimistic to me.  It took 8 hours at 250-275 for my 3-3/4 pound bone-in butt to get from fridge temp to 195 yesterday and I regularly run into times of 2 hours or more per pound.

When I read that, I thought the same thing, Especially if pwdff142 is going to put 6-10 shoulders in one grill at the same time!
NOTE TO PWDFF142.
Your estimate of 6-7 hours per load seems low. You might want to consider starting a load or two earlier. If they are finished earlier you can always wrap them in foil to hold them.

I would agree, do a full load a few days ahead if you can if you haven't run them on those before.  That will give you a good idea of time and any difficulties you might run into.
 
That's a lot of pig, I'd keep it as simple as possible.

Thanks Guys, I will definintly take that advise!! I thought it might be a little soon, but I'll keep a check on them and see. I thought I would start a grill full then, the next at about 30 mins to an hour after that one to give myself some breathing room between them. Thanks again keep all the advice coming, tomorrow is the day, and I'll keep you posted.

Let me take a moment to say Thank You to everyone that helped us throught out the preping for this Cook-off. We had a great time and the BBQ that we came out with was awesome and very tasty. We sold out at about 18:30 on Saturday with about 200- 300 more plates sold that normal. I couldnt have done it without all of your help, I have sent several pic to Foodbme to post for me, so look for them soon. If you have any questions Please feel free to ask, maybe I can take the information you gave me and pass it on to someone else. Thanks again!!

Great Job! I'm so glad everything turned out so well and sounds like you raised some money for a worthwhile cause. As I mentioned in my PM, the pictures are on their way to Buffetbuster since I don't know how to post them and wanted to make sure they get posted on here.
Again, CONGRATS!
