Pork Loin Stall on ECB???

  1. I have a 3# Pork loin on the ECB with Mods, using Stubbs and apple chucks...Looks like I hit a stall at 143 with the remote probe, grate temp has been at 240 for 2 hours. Losing some heat, temp outside is dropping grate temp down to 225... Goal is to finish it on the smoker

    You will always get a plateau when the fat starts to break down. Usually not a long one in a lean piece of meat like that.. Don't be tempted to raise the temp!
     
  3. got the grate temp back to 240 but the internal temp has dropped to 138. So i'm guessing patience ???

    Not to worry, you are past the danger zone. What temp are you shooting for?
