long low cook

what did I do wrong. I am in the process of cooking two boston butts. I put the butts on the grill after it stabilized at just under 250 degrees. I went to bed but when I got up the fire was out. I then relit the fire in the morning stabilized it again, and returned hours later and again the fire was out. Any words of advise and also will this hurt my cook?


  • maddawg,
    Maybe by chance, the lump got damp or is damp!
    How long did the butts sit without a fire under them? I've had a fire go out on occasion, and that is what it boiled down to! If the meat is still warm, I don't think you've hurt yourself. Go ahead and re-light the lump and monitor it to make sure it doesn't go out again. If you get it to hold for a couple of hours, I think you're out of the woods![p]Good luck & good eating![p]Dr. Chicken
