Today I am Smoking for the first time ever. I am doing a 6.75 lb boston butt in an MES30 with apple. Last night, I rubbed it down with yellow mustard and then my rub of choice, then rubbed it down again this morning. My plan was to put it in at 6:30, but being that I'm a noob, it didn't get in until 7:30. I have the smoker set at 220 and am using a Maverick ET-733 to monitor smoker and meat temp. It is now 11:30, (4 hours later) and the meat temp is already 158, but it seems to be slowing up. My question is, is this quick of a rise in temp normal?? Should I dial the smoker temp back?? I was planning on putting foil on it at meat temp at 165. Should I hold off on that?? Any advise would help!! Thanks all in advance!!
