Temp drop overnight

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a 8lb pork shoulder rolling. This is my 3rd over nigher. So, it looks like the WSM may have been sitting around 190 for a few hours. Do you think this will affect the meat at all? I know pork shoulder is pretty forgiving I have just never had it sit that low for that many hours. I'm guessing it was for 3-4 hours as I was sleeping. I've heard of low and slow but that is a bit excessive I think :)

What temp is the meat? I think you're fine, it'll just add some time to the cook. No biggie unless you were planning pulled pork for breakfast.

Should not be a problem other than adding a little more time to the cook.

I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago, all turned out great.

Its sitting at an internal temp of around 170 at the moment and the pit temp is at 225 now. I used some Royal Oak lump for the first time. I am normally a Stubbs coal guy but I wanted to change it up. I guess it burns a bit differently. I was just wanting to make sure nothing funky would have had time to grow in there.
