    Been on 4.5 hours and already up to 169. Still no stall.

    Using a traeger. Did smoke setting for 2 hours then been on 225 setting last 2.5 hours. I am getting nervous it won't stall. I did adjust the probe to make sure it wasn't giving wrong reading.

    Will it stall in the 170s?

    They can stall anywhere within a broad range of temperature. It's just that most will fall around the 160s°F. I had one that blasted right up to around 189°F before taking a nap for a few hours.

    It's hard to say, last weekend I did two for a party and one didn't stall. I was lucky I woke early and checked temp. The other took 4hrs longer...roughly same weight. It's a cliche, but each has their own personality.
