I'm almost 3.5 hours in and the temp is holding at 275~. Love my WSM! My internal temp is showing 184 which seems high to me for a 7.5lb butt at this time in the cook. Wonder if my meat prob has malfunctioned or something.
Also, I hate this Maveric ET-73. The range on the receiver is horrible. If I move it more than 10 feet away from the transmitter unit it stops updating. I'll be buying the 732 ASAP and throwing this thing in the garbage.
I hear the fat and grease hitting the top of my foiled water pan so I know
I'm making headway!

Best of luck on the butt. Can't wait to see the results!
Yeah, I am keeping the 409 ready to degrease anything that drips. I'll probably end up purchasing a large sheet pan and keep it under the WSM.
