    We are having company for dinner so I decided to smoke a pork butt.  I religiously followed the wonderful sticky on smoking them.  I got my apple juice and Captain Morgan all ready and put the temperature probe into the pork.  When it got to 173° and stayed there for 45 minutes I didn't panic and I didn't increase the temperature.  I sat firm because you told me to.  It's still in the smoker but it's up to 180° and moving.  The bark looks awesome.  I'm so excited and I love you guys.  [​IMG]

    Patience is key... good for you hanging in there!

    Of course... what time were you planning dinner?

    You got me there, lol.  Dinner was an hour late but since we were all drinking, nobody knew or cared.

    BTW, the bark was awesome and everything was delicious.

    Happens to all of us! I try to build in a couple of hours into a cook to allow for a stubborn piece of meat and some rest time.
    Glad it worked out for you and you had a great meal..
