Temp Stalling in Electric Smoker!?!?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by mgmsmoker, Jan 4, 2014.

  1. I am almost at 6hrs in on my 6.5lb pork at 225, but the IT has read 160 for the past 20-30 mins.  I know I have a couple of options.  One being that I can crank it up to about 250, but will that dry it out quicker?  Also, I can wrap it, but do I keep the temp the same or still raise?  What is the best option?

    You can do either or both. You won't dry out pork butt at 250. You're in a classic stall and probably have about 3 to 3 and a half hours to get to 200 IT if you just leave it.
