Med. egg totaly cleaned out, fresh lump, Hickory buried + on top. Fired up, butt on bout 9:45 am. wanted 250, but has been hanging around 300 for 4 hrs. Daisy is about closed, bottom damper about 1/4 inch open. Internal temp of butt is 155. I believe i'am ok to get to 200 internal. Not chasing the temp. Just wondering. Any comments??? Smiles to all.

  • I did a 6lb butt on Sunday. I put it on at 8:30am and maintained a 250° temp throughout the cook and I pulled it at 4:30pm with an internal temp of 200° with lots of lump left. Even though you are at 300°, you should still be able to get the internal temp to 300°. I'm sure it will be yummy :)

    That is correct...looking forward to the pics... :laugh:
  • Doing a Butt now. I put it on yesterday evening at 6:30 PM. Grate temp. at 205 all night and now 2:30 PM. Internal temp was 187 a at 2:PM. Cooked low and slow. Going to also cook some Cordon Bleu for the non-pork eaters this evening. Of course without the ham in it. About 18 people. Should be fun.
