    Bone-in Pork Shoulder. Been in since 8pm last night and it's 8:15am the next morning and I'm stalled at 150, UGH! I was hoping to get past the stall sometime in the night so I wouldn't have to go through the agony today. Owell, since it's for dinner I have a TON of time to wait out the stall.
     
  2. Looks good so far. Are you going to foil it? Keep the pics coming. But keep the door closed. Not sure how you do that?

    Happy smoken.

    Suggestion , leave the foil off and get more 'Bark' . [​IMG]

    Looks nice though. [​IMG]

    Have fun and . . .

    I'd guess in between the two readings. I agree with oldschool, with plenty of time, don't foil and go for the bark.

    The bark is way too beautiful to wrap now. I'm just gonna pull it at 190 (avg temp between the 2 thermometers) and wrap it in some towels and throw in the cooler.
     
  7. Nice. I'm doing fatties, ribs and ATBs. 


     
  8. At 190 it will slice but it won't pull. I would also later check your thermometer in something other than meat. Say a glass of water. It may be that their is that much difference in the meat temp[​IMG].

    Happy smoken.

    205 for pulled pork? I'll definitely calibrate both thermometers later as well.
     
  10. 200° - 205° for pulled.

    Happy smoken.

    I always take mine to 205.

    Gaffney , I cook at an average of 225*F , you'll hear different temps. You should play with your machine and decide for yourself the heat . A good Therm. is needed ,Mav.733 is a good one.

    Have fun and . . .
