    When it probes like butter, or the bone wiggles like a child's loose tooth.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Closer to 190. No more than 195, anything over 195 is mushy to me.

    It just depends on the desired end result that I'm shooting for. If I'm making sliced pork I pull between 165-175 just depending on the over all look and feel of the meat. For pulled pork any where from 195-208 just depending on the particular cut of meat and the cooking style that I used. There is no set in stone number my friend. There are to many factors that will determine the final perfect pull temp. But as a general guide 195-200 will yield both good pulling qualities as well as a good final taste and texture on most butts. I hope this helps my friend.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.
