First Pulled Pork

So I put my first Pork Butt on last night around midnight.  Slept on the couch next to my back door.  I kept waking up every couple of hours to check on temperature.  (Not sure why, even though it was around 30 at my house last night, the egg stayed within 5 degrees of 225 grate temperature all night according to my Maverick dual probe)

Well anyway after about 9 hours it looks like I have hit a brick wall at 160 degrees for the butt.  (It has actually DROPPED 2 degrees since I have been typing this).  I have read on this forum about the plateau, so hopefully this is it.  (Is it normal for the temp to actually drop?)

I am sure this is from lack of sleep.   :-*

(But just because I am paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get me)

Hopefully someone here can re-assure me that everything is ok.

Thanks from a new owner
