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
