One hour into my first pork butt #7lbs
Will update; trying to keep dome temp 275
I used Big Ds.....wanted to keep basic for my first time.
Def will keep it closed for as long as I can resist.
Hour 4; temp 250ish
Took one last peak for a while at hour 6... looks really good but I don't have much to compare to. Do I really need a few more hours? When does overcooking occur? I know I know I need temp I just don't trust my readings and need to invest in a good thermometer.
Ok so temp is 190; been on for exactly 8hrs
What next? Do I leave on ? Wrap in foil for couple hers till dinner. Thx in advance
Does your thermometer slide in and out of it like butter? If not, you may need to leave it on a while longer. Sometimes this doesn't happen until you hit 205 or so. But that shouldn't take much longer now that you are out of the stall.
