Hello all, first post here. Been lurking for months, just hadn't had a reason to post prior...
Anywho... I have a MasterBuilt Pro Duel Fuel. I decided to use charcoal today, and loaded up the pan and got it going for about 40 minutes and a temp of 230 before I put the rubbed ribs on. The plan was to go low and slow for 6 hours, but the slow part didn't happen.
I'm just over 3 hours into the cook, my Maverick has been within the 220-250 zone throughout (I added a few coals and more hickory about 90 minutes in) and my internal meat temp is already 160....?
I'm confused... This should've taken 6 hours or so, but I'm exactly 2 hours and 47 minutes into the cook, and my thickest rack is reading 160 internal?
Any thoughts? I'm compelled to pull them and let them sit... But these were supposed to be for dinner at 5:30PM, not a hefty snack in between lunch and dinner...lol
