    looking good so far . The first 150 degrees are the easiest. The next 50 will take forever. Hang in there. If you are gonna pull it(shredded) make sure you take it to 205 internal for the best pull IMO. I do alot of clods and chuck rolls, they are one of my favorites.

    @140 currently ... i'm planning on goin same route as my briskets . smoke till 160 , foil , sleep , take internal to 205-210 , slice & enjoy. i like the tenderness of the "pull" stage but prefer it sliced.

    Everything looks great you were really lucky you didn't get the dreaded stall. how big was that before you started. Cann't wait for the finishing pics. Nite Nite.

    10.5 lber .... & i actually had to turn it down to 180 degrees @ around 5AM this morning , cuz it was threatening to finish on me while i was sleepin. currently @ 190 . around 10:30 AM gonna turn heat back up & finish her off . was originally planned to be dinner but w/o the usual stubborn stall it's looking like lunch & dinner,lol.
    more pics to come soon.
