    Just checked and realized I'm at 285F, should I bump to 300 or leave alone? Seems like I am in no mans land at 285.
  • why is that no mans land? If you are in a hurry, bump it. If not, let it ride where it settles in

    Looking good.  +1 on leaving it alone or you'll end up chasing the temp.  285 or 300 doesn't make a difference.  If you need to hurry it along, I'd bump to 350.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Leave it where its settled. I have attempted to tweak slightly before, only to over/under shoot. Lost a lot of sleep one night because I was worried about 15*.

    Ended up taking the temp up to 325. DigiQ makes it easy. Think I'm in the stall at 160 and it smells great!

    Pulled after 6 hours and 40 minutes, it @ 200F. Resting now then pull and foidsaver for potluck in Friday. Very tasty and SWMBO really liked it.
  • That looks awesome. Great job!

    Missed the pulled shots, but they are all sitting in the freezer in food saver bags.  The 15.5lbs ended up being nearly 8 lbs cooked.  Not sure how much the injection really helped, but the rub was really tasty.  The bark was very good, but I think 325 was a bit on the high side as some of the sugar was charred/burnt.  

    BTW, the Meat Claws were great to use!  If you are going to make a lot of pulled pork, a definite must have.
