Why not just use an oven
 
I cook at home for friends and family. I'm not a competition cook and have no desire to be one. My question is, after I wrap my meat, why shouldn't I just throw it in the oven where the temp is steady? Will using an oven negatively affect the meat?

Thanks

No reason not to do it. Many of us do from time to time for various reasons.

Once it's wrapped, heat is heat.

Not much fun watching the oven with a beer in your hand.

If its a cold night or if it starts to rain I'll wrap to get over the stall and put it in the oven. I've only done this with pork butts and both were over 150*. I've done 10 so far and only had to do this with 2 of them. I live in an apartment and I have no car port so I smoke next to my parking spot. Both times I knew the meat wouldn't take any more smoke, so to avoid getting drenched I just finished them inside.

I am actually please at the progression of our forum members.... back when we had 300 members with 30 strong ones...those that were here all the time... of someone came in and asked this they would sort of get flogged.

I am glad we have gotten to the point where reality is stronger than ego. The poster above that says, after they are wrapped (assuming you have gotten enough smoke and color) heat is heat.. well that is right on!!

For competitors this is of course not the way to go because the competition rules says so... and frankly they always should because that is what the competition is done to find out...who can run their pits the best. Plus there are still 26 things that can go wrong to the meat after it got its ring on...

I had some guy visit me and watch me smoke for my church... we did butts and it rained. After 8 hours smoking 67 butts at a temp of 180---200... well it was dark.... I looked at him and said this. "Buddy the end product and its screw up free presentation is all that matters and we are not competing... so... into the warmer they go with parts going in our church ovens for 3 hours to get tender in shifts.... I ain't running this pit all night.

The next morning we were all set and rested. No one knew we did the last part in the ovens.

You're doing it wrong, you convince the wife/girlfriend/single neighbor woman that you are done stinking up the backyard and get busy for a few hours.

GTR said it in a nutshell.. heat is heat.... once i wrap, only reason I would keep it in the pit is if I WANT to sit out there with it and feed the fire.. or its still going strong...

A lot of us have and still do so from time to time as indicted in the above posts.

The main reason not to is:
The cooker is already up to a controlled temperature with many hours of fuel to burn off. It's just as easy to wrap and return to let it finish.

Used to do it with my offset all the time after I got wise. You get really sick of sleeping on the picnic bench. I haven't yet with the WSM but time will tell

Why not just use an oven
 
I've done it more than once over the winter when chit was freezing cold and windy. No shame in my game. Although I did setup the maverick on one of the cooks just to see how close the oven's digital readout was. Come to find out I was getting bigger temp swings in the oven than the wsm. Go figure...

The UDS with my Pitmasteriq is pretty much steady as an oven and I try to cook outside in warmer months to keep the house cool but if it's below 50* on a long cook after I feel the meats taken all the smoke it can sure I'll put it in the oven to finish.
