Not been a great day for meat here :(
Smoking is new to me but really want to get into it. I went to Sam's and picked up a Masterbuilt 40" Electric Smoker on Friday and a 7.5 lbs butt at the same time. Put it in the smoker this morning at 225 and here is is at 19:30 and still only registering around 147. Its been this way now for 2 hours (approx) and am getting worried that I may have done something wrong. I had good smoke coming out and was replacing my wood every 20-30 minutes. Just not sure whether I leave it or admit defeat.
Any help is greatly appreciated
