The most important thing an inexperienced cook can learn right after being told about the dreaded stall is...the stall does not matter.
It's gonna take around 12 hours to get this particular or that particular piece of meat done...stall or no stall.
I guess we all worry about different things. Instead of worrying about an unimportant stall period I tend to focus on total cook time.
