Looking for some smoking advice

Planning to smoke a picnic shoulder and pork butt. A little off in size, picnic is about 4.5 lbs and butt is nearly 9 lbs. Thinking that the larger one on top will be hotter and cook faster? Am I correct?

And particularly for Bowtie and Doc O, since they have the same brand of smoker. I would like to smoke some sausage while I do the pork. I figure that they will take less time and could dry out. So can I take them out without losing too much heat? Or am I better off not trying to cook both at the same time?

Finally, I am thinking of the memphis dust rub for the pork. Would you recommend it?

(And to all those that gave me great advice on smoking a full pork loin - Thanks. They were gone when we went back to the store, but we now know that we can grab one for smoking.)

Happy 4th everyone.

EDIT: I am not smoling until Friday, so not last minute. Just last hour.

I just had a total flashback to my mom telling some thuggy-looking kids, back in the 70's or so, that smoking would stunt their growth.

Also: smoked pork. Drool.

I spent about 7 hours working on the lawn and gardens today in 89° heat. That's warm enough for me. I guess you'll just have to move north.

Technically it is not. Two words of contradictory meaning are used together to constitute an oxymoron. Such as "jumbo shrimp", "military intelligence", or even "wise fool".




And did anyone know we can now zoom in on the offer pics??? How long has this been going on?

That’s how I would put them in the smoker. Smoke the sausage at the same time and don’t worry about losing too much heat. It’ll warm up soon enough, and water bath will help stabilize the temp.
I love the Memphis Dust rub. Highly recommend it.

Off to get the brisket ready (using this recipe), and a bottle for tasting that may or may not be offered here tomorrow. 

About a week maybe? Works on high res photos only so some of the sales where we have vendor art may not zoom.

Cool, huh?

About time. Could do that on the Mother Ship site for a long time now.

Cool would be having the order beamed directly to me.
