LowStall temp

  1. Doing first butt today, seemed to stall at 146 degrees, which seemed low from what I have seen on the forum.
    Anybody else experience stalls that low?

    They can stall low, I've had one do it to me. Did you test your therms in boiling and or ice water for accuracy?

    I've had them linger in that neighborhood for a while.... Back when I used to hover over the smoker and obsess about the temp I noticed that I would get kind of a mini stall at a lower temp and then a real big stall at 160-170 . Now when I do pork I just put it on and let it go...just look at it every few hours. I got into the habit of foiling pork butt when it hit 170....to me , it just makes things easier.
    Good luck , man. I bet it'll turn out great. Thumbs Up
