This is my first Butt. I put it on at 8:00 p.m. last night. Temp was holding steady at 230 when I went to bed at midnight, but it crept up to 300 (dome) when I got up at 6:30 but I got it back down to 230 surprisingly easy. It has now been on for 17 hours.
The internal temp has plateued in the 160's since before I awoke. It is currently 168. I want to be able to take it off the grill in the next three hours, so I have bumped the dome temp to 260. Should I go higher? If so, how high and at what point? UPDATE - I have bumped the dome to 290 and the internal is now 171.
Thanks in advance!
