Pork butt on the smoker. I think it is going to finish earlier than I hoped. I've done the faux cambro before, but I feel like it makes the bark kind of soggy... Would it work to put it in the oven unwrapped on the lowest temp for a few hours?

Thanks guys, but I may have spoke to early. IT was moving up faster than usual but it stopped dead at 162.... May end up having to increase the pit temp (230 now) to finish on time lol.

250-275* is not a bad range for a butt.

You just hit the stall. It will be there a couple hours then will take off like normal. Mine usually stall right about 160 as well, it's doing it's thing.

and it keeps that stall much shorter, often plowing right through it. I'm smoking a 10# butt at 275 right now and it didn't stall at all. Sure it moves between 160-180 slower than it did 65-100, but it's not hung for two hours, it's always moving up.

Thanks guys. I like to start it a bit lower (230ish) for the first few hours, then when the stall hits I bump the temp up. IT at 183 so we're getting close.
