Cooked to quick what happened?

edited January 2012 in EggHead Forum
I put on a 9.5 pound shoulder last night at 7pm EST. I wanted to pull it at 4.00pm today, wrap it in foil and let it rest in the cooler for two hours, pull and eat at 6pm. I ran my grate temp at 235F I set my digi Q so every time I checked it it was dead on and my calibrated egg thermometer was reading abbot 245-250. I cooked Indirect on raises grid. It's almost 8 this morning and it's at 192F. Thought it was 2 hr a pound. It was bone should I deduct weight for bone. Oh well what should I do to serve it at 6 this evening? All help is welcome. oh and yes I can add I had time figured in in case of a problem.

    I am cooking my first as we speak but it sounds like it cooked about normal to me. From I read it takes 1.5 to 2 hours per pound. Right now your at around thirteen hours and your not quite at temp yet assuming your cooking to 200 .

    Ive cooked tons of pork butts and I've NEVER had one go 2 hrs per pound.  Mine go closer to 1.25 hours per pound when cooking at a dome of 250.

  • I cooked a 9.5 lb bone in boston butt and it took 17 hours to get to 198 with a 250 dome temp.
