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.

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.
