Default The Whole Truth and Nothing.........

I found out why Eskimos don't Que. Yesterday I had some BB Bacon and C Bacon to finish off and thought I'd throw on a 8lb butt also.
Temps were in the high 20's for most the afternoon but I started the bacon off at 150* and was keeping a low fire in the EDS. After an hour I threw in some more lit Royal Oak and temps were at 250 ish. After the bacon came off (2:15 later) I threw some more lit RO in and the butt just was not moving (137* after 4 1/2hr). We took a little nap and when we woke up grate temps were still at 250ish but the butt was still at 159* I wrapped it and went back in house.
It was now getting dark and cold and I decided to pull it and finish in the oven today. I came in and told the wife to order chicken dinners from the OP. Shouda seen the look on her face before she busted out laughin her ass off at me.......
So my question to you all is...How many times have you ordered out instead of eatin the que you started???????

I always have a back up meal plan, in case the Q does not get done, which is about 98 percent of the time.

I've had it happen a time or two, but more often I get it done to early and then worry about holding it to long in the cooler.

My Eskimo dosent cook at all. LOL This is why you hear a lot "It is done when it is done"..... That also is why you cook fatties to snack on until the meat is ready.

I am so glad i'm not alone with this. Thing is all of you will at some point get several months of good weather where as I will only get a window of three weeks. lol
I have a plan though.

LOL, MM!!

I fully understand where you're coming from. The weather here in Michigan can mess up your plans in a hurry.

Fortunately for me, the wife likes her beer as much as I do. When the "Q" gets behind, she just says "So I've got time for another one?"

"Yup"
