Help! prok but has been stalled at 155 for about 2 hrs!!!

i have a 4 1/2 lb butt on bge. I put it on this am. Dome temp at 275.The internal temp is stall at 155. It's been that temp for about 2 hours. I have never had on to stall this long. Last few I have cooked, stalled about and hour that's all. Is this normal sometimes?

  • I say boost your temp to 350ish to push through the stall.

    Temp is slowly starting to climb. I raised dome temp a little. I was afraid to raise to much. I didn't want it to be tough meat.

    Throw it out and start over. Clearly defective.

    Yes, that is normal. I have had them drop temperature. Grab another beer and throw ball with dog, son/daughter. Enjoy it!

    I hear ya, same here but it's the physics of the cook. Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on your egg.
