Sorry to have to keep asking but this smoking is kicking my a**. I have so far completed a shoulder and a brisket, been through the stalls (very frustrating) but stuck with them (26.5 hours for the shoulder and 8 hours for the brisket which was noticeably smaller). I decided to try some Turkey breasts today. Got a great brine together a nice water bath (using it in the water tray of my MES 40) and a gorgeous spritz.
Everything was going well when I put these 2 bone in breasts (2.5 lbs approx each) on at noon 30 today. Well here I am at 10 pm and with multiple therms I am only registering 174 (was aiming for 180). I have seen them rise to 179 on one and 175 on the other but now they are going the wrong way and have dropped to 175 and 174 respectively. I must admit I didn't expect a stall or reversal on poultry but maybe I am wrong.
I was smoking at 235 all day until approx 3pm when I decided just to crank it to 275. Good smoke but I am not sure what more to do.
Thanks as always for your help here. I certainly am glad I found this forum
