Can't get pork shoulder past 192???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have smoked a bunch of boston butts but this is a 1st for me.

I usually pull my shoulders at 195~205

Had the normal stall @ 166 temp came on up to 192 and stopped and has not budged in several hours.

What's up with that?

What temp are you cooking at?  I have seen it happen, nothing surprises me anymore when cooking butts

235 I moved my internal temp probe to another spot just to make sure I wasn't crazy it read 195. Looks fine I guess it's just wanting to see who is more patient. I got nothin but time!

That's a good attitude for low and slow!

I've had butts stall multiple times and at higher temps, especially when cooking at temps below 265.

Boost the heat. 275-300 works great for butts and picnics. Trying to warm it to death over long expanses of time has a tendency to dry it out on most pits.

So anyway.... I ended up just waiting it out and it ended up fine. Still very moist perfect for pulling. Just gave to be prepared to go longer if you have to. Cooked on the BGE.
