    Are the stall temps usually around a certain temp or does that very on the piece of meat? Right now I'm at 136* and it's been in the 130's for at least 30-40 minutes

    I think the stall is generally around 160.

    Just make sure your smoker temp is right and let it take whatever time it needs :)

    some people say foil at 165 and bring to 200 for pulled pork so I'm guessing 165 is right past the stall stage right?
  4. I had one hit its stall just after the foil, and it took a long while to creep that last 15 degrees or so to 165.

    Personally, I think stalling after the foil is a good thing because you'll get more "liquid gold" in the foil at the end.

    I sure hope not.. I put in the smoke at 7:30 this morning and I need to be leaving by 5pm. It is a 6.60 lb butt..

    Ive had stalls between 135-160. It just depends on the piece of meat. Also are you sure the thermometer probe is in correctly and not near a bone? 6.6lbs should take about 10 hours to cook. 5pm will be pushing it but can be done. What temp are you cooking at?
