Hope this helps.
I always check internal temps... but I always Q'd points up until now, so I was worried about the time hack on this thing, but a flat can't be too diferent.
Also will be doing a couple racks of ribs (6 1/2 lbs) and a pork loin (6 3/4 lbs). Boy, with an 8 lb flat, that's a lot of meat...Yum, left overs!
