Default What Time For Big Meats

What time do you guys start your big meat at comps? I am running a wsm with a guru at 250. I started at midnight at my last comp the butts stalled at 170 for a long time the wierd thing was they were both done at 185 and my money muscle read 205.

I use a backwoods and cook about 250 as well, and I start my bigger cuts about midnight. I've always experienced the stall around 170, and they finish around 8-9am. Comes out really good now that I have my routine pretty sell set.

Yup. Midnight is a common time. Most cooks like to get their big meats done well before turn in time and let them rest in a cooler or cambro. Nothing worse than not getting done on time.

Wow, I'm in the minority here. I cook at 240* starting at 8pm and take them off at 8am right at 190-200* and cooler them. That way the cooker is empty for my Chicken and Ribs.

Not exactly the same times as me but fairly close to my times. On at 8-9pm off at 8-9 am. I had planned on adjusting that a bit if things work right, but I dont want to change things much.
