It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Pork butt 105 degrees after 4 hours?

I'm smoking my first pork butt and hoping that I haven't already failed.  I put my 8 lb pork butt on four hours ago (solid 250 dome temp throughout) and I have an internal temp of 105. I have read that after four hours the temp for pork needs to be a 140 or you are at risk of getting sick from it.  Please do not tell me that is the case...hubby might just put my Christmas present on the market.  He was a good sport through the chewy brisket and the off-flavored turkey but he might lose his sense of humor if he's up all night in the bathroom.  The good news is that I'm still having fun and love reading all of the great advice from fellow and experienced posters.  Thanks in advance.
