Default After 15 hours, my pork butt is finally done!

Sitting in a cooler resting now. Plan on pulling it in 1 hour... Stay tuned for pr0n.

Unfortunately I had to crank up the temp (up to 275, was 225) on the WSM because the internal temp of the pork was going backwards from 186 all the way down to 178.

I wouldn't stress on temperature for a butt.

I like to cook my butts a lot higher than that.

I also go by feel when it is done.

That could be 180 or 210 or whatever the heck it ends up.

Poke and feel is more reliable than a thermometer most of the time.

It's gonna be worth the long wait unless there was too much beer involved in the process

Sometimes they take forever. I did my first high heat butt yesterday. Started at 225 for the first hr then to 350. Took 6hrs total and was great. If you like playing around i'd say give that a try sometime.

I prefer to sleep, so choose to cook butts and other large difficult cuts of meat at a higher temp, 275-300 works for me. Same results, and more sleep.

I read somewhere today, I think it was an article by Steven Raichlen, that you can sometime expect some decrease in temperature while the fat and collagen is melting.

Yup, I've seen it happen before I knew it was normal. Started doubting my thermometers and a lot of other things including my sanity.

Yea, that is what happened to me for sure (doubts!) but in the end it all works out! Was delicious!

My wife even said it was better than Dinosaur BBQ - which is a huge compliment considering they are the best around here.

P.S
I will take that compliment with a grain of salt considering she has to live with me. :-)
