10 lb Bone in Butt - 22hrs at 225 - 190 degrees now

So....hungry.... Neighborhood is awash in porky goodness aromas. This butt is taking a long freaking time. Bone is still firmly set. Must resist....

    All the low and slow has done it's good. Crank her up to 300 or higher to finish. Use 250* in future.

  • Agreed. Don't really lose anything cooking at. 250 vs 225.

    I had take 24 hours, after 22 I kicked up the temp to 300 to finish. Pure magic, can't screw up a pork butt!
    Thanks, Mike "Live in such a way that if anyone should speak badly of you, no one will believe it."
  • Turned out great! I ended up checking temp in a few spots with my shiny new super-ultra-mega fast white Thermapen and found I had a lot of locations between 195 and 198. Thanks for the advice everyone! Good stuff as usual :)
