Internal temp going down !

Have a chuck/shoulder on the Egg, pit temp at 230, internal temp was up to 175 but now has dropped to 164 ! Is this normal?

    Not unusual for IT to drop during the stall. Let it finish cooking. You're fine.

    yes you have enter "the stall zone"  normal on low and slows you can let it ride, or bump the temp up and power through it.  at 230 it will take a lot longer than at 275 or 300.  some people will foil at this point to power through as well.  I like to let it ride.  Just some suggestions.

    Hey dude!  I've been busy as hell this weekend, but good luck with the cook and we'll be givin ya a call next time we're in the Gulf Shores area.

    Man, what a weekend.  I got to talk food at a friend's party with head chef and owner of Dante's Kitchen, who's been a friend of SWMBO for years.  Had an extra ticket to the Hornets on Friday and met a new NOLA egger who's cool and hooked me up with a good butcher.  Ate at Sarah's Bistro on Sat for dinner, discovered a Tapa place, and ate at the Jagerhaus (German food), at lunch on Sunday, watched the Saints destroy TB in a shutout, and then to the party. Helped a poor neighborhood guy with some legal advice from a lawyer friend, trying to hook up a music writer with the Advocate BR paper (Mrs B bought his book and loved it).  Good food, good company, good times.

    Get more BEER and crank up the heat!

    Looks like you have had a really busy but fun weekend ! Will be waiting on that call from you, but you know I won't mention the drawer fronts to Mrs. B. ......I have no unfinished projects, but I have some beachfront property in Tennessee for sale if you're interested !

    Hahaha....she forgave me for not finishing the drawers.  We had fun together and ran around all weekend, so I'm off the hook.  I'll get 'em done sometime this week.  I'm in manic mode where progress gets made. 

    I have a picnic in the fridge right now....trying to figure out if I want to cure it, or just do some pulled pork.  decisions...decisions....
