Last night i started my first attempt at a pork butt. Coals were started at 1030pm, butt on at 11pm, and by 1145pm the Egg was stable at 230. When I checked it at 1245am the dome temp was 100 and I couldn't getbit back by opening the vents. I did what I swore I would not do and opened the Egg, removed the meat' and re-lit the coals :(. It got back to between 230-250, was steady at 145am and I went to bed because I was tired and out of Bourbon (the true rookie mistake). I just checked the Egg and the dome temp was about 150, and my digital meat probe read the meat was 145. I opened the vents and have it back to 230-250 now.
My question is, did I mess this up by the temp being too low overnight, or if I still get the meat to about 195-200 by dinner time will it be ok ( still at a dome Temp of 250).
2nd question is why did this happen? It was stable when went to bed and I had the vents set the same as when I have done ribs low and slow for 5 hours that turned out amazing.
Happy 4th of July and God Bless America!
