    Are you sure your thermometer is accurate? If so maybe try reprobing the meat and see what you get.

    Sounds like something is off.

    What temp are you smoking at ?

    I had a pastrami stall at 174 for 6 hours last week. But they usually don't stall that long at 150. Are you smoking at 225 & do you have a good thermometer at the grate level for an accurate reading on the smoker temp?

    It ended up being 16+ hours for less than a 6.5# butt.

    I ran at 225 the whole time. I have two digital thermometers. I checked both at a boil after two hours into the stall. One was 212 and the other 213.

    At the end both were in the meat as I was sure the smoker was holding good. I pulled at 170 and added apple juice in foil. It still took 3 hrs to hit 200.

    All was great and moist.??????????

    Wierd !!!!!!!

    The ABT's cooked perfect in 2.5 hours?????

    They have a mind of their own.

    I'm glad it came out good for you!
