Bigguy's Friday Night Threesome

Okay, get you mind out of the gutter. I put three pork shoulders (2@ 9 lbs and 1 at 11 lbs) on my large. I put them on at 5:00 PM, set my Stoker for 250° and was shocked when the alarm was going off at 4:30 AM for being done. I went out with my thermopen and yes, they were all at 200°. I think I had the meat too close to my Stoker temp sensor and it was much hotter than 250°. Now I know.

    As a matter of curiosity what did your dome thermo read during this cook?  Reason I'm interested is the reference dome temp is the driver for expected cook times unless otherwise mentioned, at least for the very great majority of cooks cited here.

    Sorry but I never looked at my dome temp. I trust my Stoker so much that when the lid shuts, I do all monitoring from my computer. I guess I shouldn't trust one device 100%

    Thanks for the reply-I don't run with a controller but there are always "lessons learned" every time we fire up the BGE-next time a different journey.  That's part of the fun...at least for me.

    I only wanted one butt for myself and I gave one to my parents and Monday I will give away the third to a co-worker. It was fun and I will do again, but maybe just two at a time. I get my shoulders fresh, never frozen choice grade for $1.50/ lb. With that price, I don't feel bad about giving it away.

    Sounds about right for time. 17 1/2 hours for 9 pounds. They never cook according to plan

  • Nice butts!  Good title on the thread.  Made me curious about what you had going on!
