Hey guys I have two quick questions if I may.
I am a new egger (only been doing it a year) and still learning but get a lot of compliments on the food so I am encouraged to keep at it and appreciate the help I have had on the forum so here it goes.
I am smoking a pork butt right now it weighs 7.5# I have an internal temp of 125 I put it on at 9pm Sunday night. I fell asleep at 1 am and the dome had been holding 220 for 3 hours no prob. I woke up early (for me) at 7am and checked the temp and it had fallen to 145 I readjusted and now have it back at 220-230. Here are my questions.
1) Did I ruin the meat? What I mean is because the temp fell below the 220 mark to 145 for I don’t know how long how bad is that? In a worst case scenario I would guess 6 hours. Do you guys think the meat bad now?
2) Is there some way to keep this from happening again (besides staying up all night) I will do some searching but thought I would throw it out here just in case.
Thanks a million for any advice.
