The 3 butts came off at 6:30 this morning . . .

edited 6:15AM in EggHead Forum
Three butts, total weight of 19 lbs. Went on last night at 4:00 pm. Seemed like they cook pretty fast and I was a bit more than mildly concerned that I was reading 170* internal at 9:00 pm however, 170* to 200* took another 9-1/2 hours. When I put the butts on yesterday afternoon, my thought was that it would take longer to do three than what my normal experience is cooking one. Guess not. So the three butts are now double wrapped in heavy duty aluminum foil and sitting in my oven at 170*. I'll leave them there until noon when I'll remove them, wrap them in towels, transfer them to a warm ice chest and then hit the road for the party. I'll be pulling them at around 3 or 4:00 pm. I guess they'll be just fine -- right?

    Steve in Maryland,[p]I like to pull the pork when it comes off the BGE. It pulls easier and especially if you get the meat to 200 degree area.

    Steve in Maryland,
    I had a similar experience a few months ago and the pork turned out great I wouldn't sweat it. Occassionally check the temp but you should be fine.

    It will be more moist and pull even easier with at least an hour rest in the cooler. -RP
