Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for 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.
