I have been smoking meats for a few years now but never a pork butt roast.
Went through read all the great information on here and new it was going to take a LONG time.
I started at 8am at 220deg (it's a 9lbs roast) planned on doing the foil at 240deg last few hrs.
It is now 11:11pm lol and only at 174deg I wrapped it in double foil 5hrs ago. I also temped it in two different places to make sure,
Ok,my question is can I lower the temp down to 178 for the next 5 hrs then crank it back up?
I have to be back up then and although I am wide awake and could stay up probably not my best choice.
Hoping this is a ok way to do this and will look forward to responses.
Thanks and have a good night/morning
