Good luck with your butt. Just don't rush it. I foil at 165 and then take it to 205 to pull. Don't forget SoFlaQuers finishing sauce. It's really good on your butt.

looks good, keep in mind you might encounter a plateu, where the temp might even fall back a little and stay ther for a while. Just wait it out and be patient.

cant wait to see the finished product.

Solar I'd get your heat up to 250º region if you can. What temp are you going to wrap in foil at? Or are you planning on foiling?

Nice!!! your gonna have some good eats by the looks of it

I planned on foiling at 165° my temps are right at 225° but you think I should increase the heat?

heat around 230 - 250. I give it another hr or 2. hows yours coming

Same ol' same ol' I've been between 154 and 156 for over 2 hours with heat at 225, soon as it hits 165, I'm foiling and going into the SEHB (square elctric hot box) in the kitchen to finish it. biggrin.gif I've chowed down on my Shrooms and Shrimp, they came out great, but still waiting for 165.
