So I cooked a pork but the first week I got my egg (about 2 months ago). I foiled it part of the way through to get it cooking a little faster and it all turned out pretty darn good, everyone that ate it was impressed. Well I'm cooking 2 pork butts for friends birthday party tonight, this time I did not want to foil or use the "texas crutch". I seasoned yesterday and put in the fridge wrapped in saran wrap for half the day. Fired the egg up and stabilized at 225 last night and put it one about 11 pm. One of the butts was 6 lbs and one 8 lbs. The 6 lb just finished and the 8 is still at 188.... it seems tender but not quite where I want it. Is this amount of time normal for a butt? I expected 12 or so hours but now I'm approaching 17 hours on the 8 lb butt. I may just go back to foiling when it gets to 160ish.
