Smoking Boston Butts:
- Capacity - 20 boston butts - 6-7lb each
- Cook time at 225° - 9 to 9.5 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 8.5 to 9 hours
- We recommend using 6-7 lb butts, so all 8 rotisserie racks can be used. When using larger 8 to 9 lb butts, you may not be able to use the upper racks. This cuts the capacity to only 12 boston butts. 12 - 8lb butts will still yield 45lb of pulled pork which is enough for 180 (4oz) sandwiches.
- 20 - 6lb pork butts will yield approximately 55 to 60 lb of pulled pork and 225 (4oz) sandwiches
- Capacity - 8 whole briskets - 9-12lb each
- Cook time at 225° - 8.5 to 9 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 7 to 7.5 hours
- Capacity - 16 flat briskets - 5-6lb each
- Cook time at 225° - 6.5 to 7 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 5.5 to 6 hours
- If you are using slightly larger 7-8lb brisket flats you may need to add 30-45 minutes to your total cooking time. Time may slightly vary depending on the thickness of the brisket. We typically cook briskets in the Pit Boss fat side down and it seems to help with self basting.
Smoking Pork Ribs:
- Capacity - Saint Louis Style Ribs - 16 slabs 2.25lb or less
- Cook time at 225° - 4.5 to 5 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 3.5 to 4 hours
- Capacity - Baby Back Ribs - 20 slabs 2.25lb or less
- Cook time at 225° - 4 to 4.5 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 3 to 3.5 hours
- When cooking ribs, you always have the opportunity to cook 16 half chickens at the same time. Also, using a lower temperature will help with the yield and promote less shrinkage.
Smoking Turkey Breast:
- Capacity - 16 bone-in turkey breast - 7-9lb each
- Cook time at 225° - 5.5 to 6.5 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 4.5 to 5.5 hours
- Cook time at 275° - 4 to 4.5 hours
- Cooking at 275° is not always recommended. The higher temperature seems to dry out the breasts too quickly, even if the breast has been brined.
- Capacity - 32 whole chickens - 3-3.5lb each
- Cook time at 225° - 3.5 to 4 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 3 to 3.5 hours
- Cook time at 275° - 2.75 to 3 hours
- Capacity - 40 half chickens
- Cook time at 225° - 2.5 to 2.75 hours
- Cook time at 250° - 2 to 2.25 hours
- Cook time at 275° - 1.5 to 1.75 hours
- We believe that the best temperature for cooking chicken is 250° and until an internal meat temperature of 170° is reached.
- Whole chickens cooked in a Pit Boss stay extremely moist. Thirty whole chickens will field over 120 people. Mix and matching 1/2 chickens and 1/2 pork loins also makes for a very good meal and cooking combination as the cooking times are very similar.
Additional Loading and Smoking Tips:
- It is very important to make sure you evenly load the Pit Boss and make sure it is balanced properly before starting the smoke cycle and starting the rotisserie. Also be sure to check for clearance between the racks.
- After loading the Pit Boss Smoker and before closing the door, watch 2-3 revolutions of the rotisserie to double check the balance and rack clearance.
- The above steps should be done each time the Pit Boss is used and should be performed once the rotisserie racks are fully loaded.
