21 hour Pork Butt

Wife brought home a 9 pound bone in pork butt and wanted
so give it a try. filled the EGG with coal and lit in the middle. Had some home made rub and alternated the rub with mustard until it had a nice layer.
The EGG stabilized around 230deg and went to bed.
Got up in the morning and the darn thing was still sitting on 230deg,it just amazes me it stays that stable.
Anyway 21 hours later it hit 195 internal, pulled and wrapped in foil and placed in a cooler for several beers.
Turned out fantastic!!
Very moist and fell off the bone just looking at it.
But 21 hours is a long time to wait when your hungry. :side:

    Bump that temp up to 250 or so and it will get done quite a bit faster and you'll never know the difference in quality.

    Glad it turned out for you. In the future you can bump the temp to 250-300. There is nothing magical about maintaining a low temp.... :)

    bump the temp up like posted or cook at 230 at the grill level. a dome temp of 230 means your cooking around 210 at the grill which is doable but it takes too long.

    Just crank the temp up to 250-270 and it will get done sooner and taste just the same!

    I thought it would have crept up a little over night,
    I did crank it up to 300 the last hour or so.
    I guess I will try a little hotter next time!
