I'm pretty inexperienced in the Boston Butt department. I was hoping to be having pulled pork for dinner around 8:00-8:30 this evening and it's starting to look like I may be headed to KFC instead!!
The butt has been on for exactly 8 hrs and 53 min. right now. The Egg has done great and stayed steady at 235-245 degrees the whole time. Problem is this "plateau" thing is killing me. The meat has be sitting on 159 for what seems like forever now and is still not going up!!
Can anyone make an good guess about how much longer I might be looking at? My parents are planning to come over for dinner at 8:00 and I KNOW it won't be ready by then. Should I plan to go ahead and get some fried chicken??
Oh yeah, almost forget to tell you that it is only a 4.17 lb butt. I thought it would be done in about 8 or 9 hours.
