My first attempt at pulled pork

You need to be at 225-250 or you will never get it done. I suggest you try this recipe.http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/140055/boston-butt-pulled-pork-step-by-step Hopefully that was a misprint 120-130? At 225 figure 2 hours per pound. Since we don't know how big your butt is I can't say how long it will take but 2 hours per pound plus a two hour rest is usually about right.
LOL. Q-view is what we call it around here. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/newsearch?search=Q-view&=Search
Now that stall is a good thing. That is where the magic happens. You can Foil at 165 or so to help push it through a little bit faster but just stick to your guns. They have a mind of there own and you may hit more than one stall, even up to 3. That looks like a pretty good size Butt there. You usually don't hit the real stall until 165 or 170. I have had a 6 pounder take 15.5 hours before. It happens. It's always good to have a plan B when doing a big Butt like that so you are not counting on it for dinner. Maybe some Brats or ABT's or something to tide you over in case it's not done until 1AM. Been there done that.
