I know I am not doing something right on the web posting but it want let me comment on others input or my own...oh we'll. More importantly my Butt seems to be working nicely. Started at 8 pm last night and maintained solid 250 dome temp till I went o bed at 12:30. Never opened the egg and temp never budged. Got up about 6 am to check temp and it had slid to about 270 gave a little adjustment and went back for a small snooze. Just opened lid for first time 10 hours in and meat temp is 150 with nice bark. I'm already getting hungry.

    Keep doing what you doing, you may still have to wait a bit sometimes the Butt will seem to stall and the meat temp will be real slow going the rest of the way.  Be patient and enjoy when it is done.

    Thanks for the suggestions. 8 lb Butt cooked for 21 hours and I pulled it at about 190 meat temp ( using iffy thermometer) wrapped and waited an hour. Awesome meat just fell apart. Just finished stuffing myself with pulled pork, collards, and black eyed peas. How did I ever cook without the egg!?! Unbelievable!!!!
