I have a 7.5 lb bone in butt that has been in my MES at 220 for 12 hrs and has stalled at 163 for 2+ hours now. Looking to have it for dinner tonight, would bumping up my temp to 240 ish work to break it out or should I just ride it out?

Myself, I foil the pork butt at this point, but I'm not a huge fan of bark. Others on the forum will bump up the temp a little to power through the stall. And those with iron nerves tough it out. Since you are on a tight deadline, I'd recommend foiling or bumping up the temp.
Good luck! Be sure to post Q-view!
Happy Labor Day Weekend,
