Pulled Pork

edited 2:48AM in EggHead Forum
Loaded Pork @ 6AM, set temp to 225. Went to the auto shop (2.5 Hrs)came back and dome temp had jumped to 350, internal temp on pork is 165. Am I screwed? Any advice?

    Slow it down and you'll be OK. It won't be perfect, and likely not quite as good as a true low and slow cook, but pork butt has a huge margin for error.

    The bark and exterior may be a bit tough, but overall it will eat. Just finish as usual and give it a good rest before pulling it.
  • You should be fine get the temp back to 250* and keep going. :)

    No, just adjust temp back to 225 and continue to cook until internal temp reaches 200. Wrap in aluminum foil and wrap in towel and place in cooler until you are ready to serve.
  • thanks!
