  1. Hello fellow smokers I have two pork butts on my wsm 18.5 since 930 pm last night had a long stall at 160 degrees finally up to 190 do they normally take this long

    Yep they sure can.

    What you are experiencing is quite normal.

    On my last pork butt, with 8.5 pounds of meat, I started at 4:30 a.m. in the morning. At 3:00 p.m. the next afternoon I gave up trying to wait out the stall and foiled. I took it out of the smoker at an IT of 205 degrees. It was about 6:00 p.m.

    The size of your meat and the smoker temp make a huge difference in cooking times. A three pound roast will often not stall at all when smoking at 225 degrees, whereas an eight pound piece of meat can take 4-8 hours to get through the stall, leading to cooking times that go way beyond twelve hours, as mine did.
