Pork shoulder in smoker

How long will it take to cook a 10 pound pork shoulder in my smoker? it runs at about 200 degrees. I want it to be able to be pulled easily.
Thanks in advance!

I would expect it to take 12-14 hours. You might want to run somewhere in the range of 225F-250F.

Hey thanks for the quick reply! Unfortunately I do not have a temp control on it, you just plug it in and go

Not the end of the world. It was just a suggestion. What are you smoking with?

Hi all,

I have two 10 lb butts dry rubbed in the frig that will go on my smoker @ 4pm today and I wouldn't even look at them 8am tomorrow. (16hrs)

I will add soaked wood chips 3 times during the night and have a remote alarm set to go off if the temp. drops below 200 or goes over 280

There's a great Video on Utube about smoking pork butt.

It is a Binkman electric smoker I got at a yard sale, and get this it was $5.
I use it for parties all the time but never have done anything this large. I will probably use mesquite and hickory, whichever one I have on hand. Once again thanks!

Hey copper,
Have you checked that temp with a reliable thermometer? The ones that come stock with the smokers are notorious for being incorrect. You may also be able to increase the temp a bit if you seal the access doors with gasketing material to help prevent heat loss.
