Butt temp chart

Does anyone recall seeing a post on butt cooking temps a while back? I'm interested in seeing a listing of the appropriate internal temps for a butt over the course of the cooking time from frig to pull. [p]As I type this I've got an 8.5 lb butt on the egg. Dome temp now is about 210, but I had some control troubles at the outset. For about the first hour of the cook, the dome temp was around 300-325. As a result, my meat temp, currently two and a half hours into the cook, is 100 degrees.... Does this seem appropriate?[p]Thanks for the help.

    bdavidson:[p]Over the four hour period from when the butt war removed from the refrigerator, the internal should be at 140* to escape the "danger zone". Is that what you are asking?

    bdavidson,
    I have seen some charts but wouldn't know where to find them. Sounds like you are doin fine. Keep dome around 250 if you are doing in indirect. Get a good nights sleep. Should be plateauing when you wake up.
    Sweet dreams

  • djm5x9,
    Mot quite. At one point, someone had posted the temperature climb of their butt hour by hour through the cook to a goal temp of 200. I'm wondering if anyone has a copy of that chart.
    5 hours into it now. Dome temp still 225 and meat temp 134.[p]I'm going to bed...
    Night!

    bdavidson,[p]I don't remember who posted the chart, but I log internal temp every hour or so when I do a butt. Usually they hit 140-150 in the first 4 hours or so. Sounds like you're perking along nicely.[p]Cathy
