Pork Butt in Progress

7+ lb boneless pork butt (miffed about the boneless part but oh well)
Dizzy Dust
Apple Chunks

-Start: 10PM EST Friday evening - stabilized @ 225 when I went to bed at 1AM. Internal was ~100
-Woke @ 7 AM to 213 grid temp & 155 internal
-Tapped the bottom of the charcoal grate with the ash tool, opened grate, temp came back up to 300, then dampered back down to 244 as the internal came up to 172. - took about two hours to get to that point, and I've been sitting at 172 since then, with a rock steady 244 grate temp.

Fully aware that I'm in the stall. Just excited about it, and figured I'd check in!

    Great to hear that the cook is matching your eggspectations.  Sounds like you have it under control to the eggstent you can with any hunk of meat.  Enjoy the journey and welcome aboard.  Great eats at the finish-line

    "Stalls" are always interesting -- because they are all different.  "PATIENCE" is the word!!  Enjoy your end result.  And i don't think "bone in" or "boneless" make much difference...
