    Looking good....
    I'm sure you already realize it, but those puppies are at the "plateau" right now, and will break loose towards 200deg in due time.

    Thanks, I know, I did not think they were ever going plateau, but that just me.

    Gonna pull it tonight and rewarm tommorow? What kind of sauce will you use?
  • Fireball IIFireball II Posts: 213
    I plan on pulling them off tonight and wrapping in al for 3 hours. Finish pulling the pork apart tonight and back into al pan. Then reheating tomorrow. Have a 4 hour drive. I leave the sauce off until serving use Rendezvou sauce from Memphis.

    Are you going to put the butts in the fridge until you need them tomorrow? If yes, are they as good the next day and do they lose any moisture?
