10 hours and still those butts are only at 165 degrees... Tell me, when the stall is over, does the temp rise rapidly?

After the stall they do rise at a good rate. Make sure you therm isn't near a bone or it will give you a lower false reading.

Dam and I did one 6 1/2 lber in 7 1/2 hours. Did you foil at 165º. I assume also, no temp control for the electric?

After reading many threads, I decided not to foil. I also cut the fat cap off one and left the other on... In the future, I think I will remove fat caps... as I like the extra bark. Like everyone says, experiment and do what you like most.

 

My pics were in another thread... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/108000/maiden-voyage

 

But for your viewing pleasure, and to make it easy...
