The Stall

I'm fairly new to smoking on the egg.  So, what does "the stall" mean?  Is this where it reaches a desired temp. and then you let it rest off the egg for it to reach the final temp?

    Most larger pieces of meat when cooking get to a point where the internal temperature will stop rising for a long period of time. This is called the stall. Usually caused by moisture beginning to evaporate from the meat so the heat energy from the grill is going toward evaporating water and not heating your meat.
    You can crank your heat up to get through it faster or just wait it out.
