We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! 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.
