If you have not injected the meats...just let it cook on till it gets to the foiling temp...or let it roll until the 195-200* mark. Are you sure your therms are calibrated? You could crank the temp on the smoker/cooker up some too. I do mine between 250-275* now a days.
that doesn't sound right...i would test your thermometer real quick in the oven and make sure its reading right. do you have a secondary thermo? Also are you sure your smoker was at 220-225? The Thermo on the smoker may be off as well....i'll be on here checking back for ya
Be careful at 300 and make sure you keep an eye on it. 200-225 is the low end for a bb.
I usually cook them at 250 and am going about 1.5hrs per pound.
Foiling at 160-165 is also going to help you speed it up a bit.
Butts are going to be one of the cooks you are going to have.
yea you might want to bump it down to 285....i would check the thermo because you might be worry about nothing...but a new Mav shouldn't mess up.
the butt wasn't frozen when you put it on was it? make sure the prob wasn't hitting the bone also...check a few internal points. Even at 225 you should have been atleast at 140 after 3.5-4 hours
well since you didn't inject you have a little more lee-way past 140...so i'd say check it in 45 mins....dont lift the top off before. it its not well above 145 you might need to mark it up as a lose unfortunately :/
I have an et-732 and i notice that sometimes it doesn't match the Tel Tru on my smoker.
