Put it on last night at 7 DST - now it's 1 EST..that's 19 hours. I have a pan under it with broth and apple cider. Pit temp dropped off to 185 last night but I pulled it back up quickly - butt never dropped below 162.
I have a DigiQ and the pit has been at 225 for all of the cook except for the hour or so it dropped off to 185 (had the dampers closed too much).
The butt is now at 184 and slowly climbing, but I've never seen one go this long. Should I worry? I'm actually thinking it ought to be great!
