    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!

    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.
