So, last night I threw on a 7 lb boneless pork shoulder on the ol' Weber Kettle. Have had only one go-round with a similar shoulder and took over 14 hours before I gave up and took it off at IT of 191 (10:45pm). See previous posting in my history if interested in that.
This time I tried putting it on at 8:45pm last night trying to "outsmart" the stall and also so I wouldn't get so frustrated. Data is below for what's happened so far:
8:45pm - shoulder goes on
9:45pm - IT at 62, grill at 250
10:45pm - IT at 98, grill at 250
4:30am - IT at 176, grill at 225
SLEEPYTIME!!!! (had a nightmare about someone taking the lid off - no joke)
6:45am - IT at 167, grill at 225
8:45am - IT at 185, grill at 260
Trying not to get too excited about the 9 degree dip from 4:30 - 6:30am, as I know it is common for it to drop a little during the stall. Not sure if 9 degrees is common, but being patient with it!
Will update with Q-View after I take it off...going to try to wait for 200-205 IT.
Chime in with any feedback...hope everyone is having a great smoking Labor Day!
