I feel your pain! My last butt smoke  took 20 hours! It's well worth the wait!

I did a Sam's 2 pack yesterday. At 14 hours I needed to go to work they were at 181. My wife finished them in the oven. I was determined to stick it out at 225 with black cherry the whole time. They turned out very good. I have never had a butt take over 16 hours and don't know why. Normally around 10-12 hours. Yours is looking good and is definitely worth the wait.

 

Oh yea, I didn't take any pictures so it never happened. Nothing left over at my house....lol

  It do look good!  But at 26 hours I have to ask. Are you sure your cook chamber therms are correct? Just sayin'.

Large pork shoulders get 235 to 250 smoker temps for me to get done. Yours look great and worth the wait............icon14.gif

Looks great!  That's a long smoke for sure, but it sure looks like it was worth the wait.

I did my first one on Saturday - put a 6 pounder in at 6am, 14 hours later it was ready to take out - then rest for a few hours before pulling. I wasn't done until 10 pm that night. Needless to say we went out for dinner that evening, but last night it was pulled pork sammiches - mmmm good! Sorry, picture is on my phone.

Next time I'm upping the temp to 250 to see if I get a more reasonable time out of it.

I agree the smoke time was a little long i was at 225 the whole time. The next one i smoke i think im going to up to 230 250 range and maybe that will speed it up. I used three temp probes all read about the same. I pulled it out at 180 and wrapped it in foil and it sat for hour or so before we pulled it.

Wow!  26 hours and the IT was only 180?  That is remarkable. Are you sure your meat thermo was reading right?

 

How big was the butt?

I've smoked several butts in my bradley and have never had one take 26 hours.  I am sure there is something amiss with the temps.  But hey, as long as they are good who cares!..

I have had a few butts that have taken 22-26hrs to reach 200 degrees.  That was with my smoker set at 225.
