    If temp is steady go to bed.

    I agree with Keithww. If your temp is steady, go to bed. I remember my first butt, I stayed up all night watching the temp gague. I was so excited. Now after many butts, I stabilize the temp and go to sleep. Enjoy your pulled pork. I'm sure it will be delicious.

    I agree, too. If you really want some major piece of mind, get a DigiQ II. Although I believe the Egg will hold the temp without it, the DigiQ let's you "set it and forget it."

    I build a fire, set the DQ for 225, close the lid and go away. Hasn't failed me yet.

    You all are right. Its 4 in the morning, just woke up to my second alarm and got this reading. It is a little hard to see, but its 250.
