    What kind of thermometer ya have ? Reason I ask is I have a Mav & I can set it to go off at a set temp.... That way ya could get a little shut eye !

    As long as it's accurate, ya should be ok.... Just may be kind of a late night for ya if it doesn't have a temp alert or ya can check on it every so often until it hits around the 190* IT & start the toothpick test.... When ya wrap it in foil, towels & put it in the cooler it'll stay in there for a good 5 hrs or a little more if ya need it too !

    Like a bunch of folks on here, I use the Maverick ET-732.... It is a dual probe therm so ya can keep track of meat IT & one for smoker temp.... Ya can also use the smoker temp probe for a second meat probe if need be as well.... If somethin happened to that Mav, I'd be ordering another just as quick as I could !

    Not unusual, part of the stall can be a little bit of a temp loss.... No worries, it'll start creeping up !

    That's a hard one to answer, it can be an hour or even longer.... Hour & a half plus..... Each piece of meat is different & some can be really stubborned ! Sorry, can't really be more specific on this one !
