X2 on the internal temp. Depending on the cooker temp it should take around 30 minutes per pound. That is cooking around 250 - 275 for a 6-8 pounder. I always allow a couple hours just in case. You can wrap in foil and stick it in a cooler with some old towels if you need to hold it for a few hours before eating. Good luck and post some pics and cooking times.

Agree. I did a 5lb breast yesterday and 165 internal temp is what I went to. It was great! Injected with melted butter and Tony Chachere's Creol seasoning, then sprinkled seasoning on top. I laid bacon strips on it about an hour into the process. Apple juice and apple chips for smoke. Awaiting leftovers!
