yes. Pork butts hit the "stall" around 175 and can take 3-4 hours (or more) to get out of it. This is the temp where the fats and connective tissues begin to break down. As they break down they moisten the meat and keep the internal temp down. once they are done, it will rise to the perfect temp of 195 with some ease.
