    They are almost done.  I should have rotated them an couple of hours ago though.  What I'm finding is the outer parts of the butts are almost at 190-210 and probe is sliding in great, but the inner parts are at 180+ and meeting some resistance. I rotated each butt 180 degees and will let them go another 30 minutes and check.  Then will FTC until ready to pull.

    @HDmstng, find the middle and assure its 190+ and bone is moving around if pulled, FTC and it will generally level the temp throughout in my experience.

    Thanks plumbfii01.  These are boneless and I pulled the smaller one 30 minutes ago and it is FTC'ing.  The other was 189 in the center mass and going to let it go for a few more minutes and then pull and FTC.

    The smaller one was a tad dry but the larger one was spot on. The pic is of the larger, it broke into two pieces when lifting to pull.
