Hi all. I'm doing my first butts today and my temp probe on one is 192 deg and only about 186-188 on another after almost 23 hours, but the twist test with a dinner fork is super easy. I've been basting almost hourly and they look super moist and tender. Should I consider them done even if they don't get to 190 to 200 deg?

Thanks all for the help!

  • I personally go to at least 195.  Keep in mind that just because 1 butt is done does not mean the other is.  Butts are like snowflakes, no 2 are alike.

  • Are they bone in? If the bone just kinda falls out with a little pressure you aree done. It's not gonna hurt it if you go a little longer either. I'd bet that if you pulled them now and foiled they would get to 200.
