    Any info would be appreciated. I've been smoking an 8 lb shoulder for about 7.5 hours already. First few hours were at 260 or so and the remainder has been between 240-250. It is now at 201 degrees. Pretty sure the thermo is accurate and I have probed the meat in several places. Should I be concerned or did I just get lucky? The thermo is an ET-73 that I have never had an issue with. The shoulder has also been foiled since 165. Thanks guys.

    We don't say lucky, we say "good".

    Hell yeah man. Get that baby wrapped up and put into a cooler for a couple of hours. Give it some time to break down for sure since your cook went so fast.

    I just checked the thermo in ice water. Reading 34 degrees. It's wrapped up in the oven until 205 then into some towels and the cooler for about 4 hours. Thanks man.

    Your're there go get the foil and a cooler some old towels and let it sit for awhile and then ake it out and pull it. While your looking for towels fine the camera and use it please. Just remeber we are all kids here and you have the candy.
