So my first butt I cooked was 9 lbs. I put it on at 3am temp 250 and it was not finished in time to eat at 6. So this time I got an 11 lb butt and figured around 18 hr to cook. So it put it on at 9pm and figured it would be done around 3ish so I could wrap it and put it in a cooler. Well set the temp at 250 went to bed and checked on it a couple times last night. Held 250 all night. This morning at 7am the meat temp is already at 175. This thing is getting done way to fast. What are my options if it gets done way early. We are not eating until 6pm.
On a side note. My wife got me a www.eggware.net cap for Father's Day. It is awesome and looks super cool to. There customer service is hands down best I have come across. I called the Friday and left a message. Matt called me back within 30 min. He was on vacation playing golf in NC and still had time to talk with me. My cap had a small area on the top where one of the welds had burnt thru the top. He said he would send a brand new cap on Monday when he got back to the office. That is the kind of customer service that makes a business successful. Thanks www.eggware.net
