Pork Butt Emergency

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by hawgman88, Aug 24, 2013.

  1. I am smoking a Boston butt today and I put it in the smoker at 6 am this morning and only 5 hours into the smoke my meat temp is 168 ( checked with 2 therms). Is this bad or do I need to do something to slow this down? My smoker temp has been no lower than 225 and no higher than 250.

    Your fine. Every meat will cook at its own pace...... Just be ready for the stall.....

    If it does get done before you need it, double wrap in foil and then put in a cooler stuffed with towels.  It will hold there for hours.
