Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it seems every butt I do takes 12 hours.

This week I had a 4.5 lb butt that took 12 hours to the minute.

Using a GOSM, butt on the second to bottom rack. Temps on 2 thermos steady at 220. Foil at 165 & pull at 205.

Hmmmm...

have you ever checked the inside temps with a sep digi thermo? or going by the OEM gauge that came with the unit?

also.........try bumping your temps up to 250............

Yup. I have the Maverick Redi-chek that has one probe for the smoker & one probe for the meat. Both appear to be fairly accurate.

kewl..........so do i........mite then want to bump the heat up abit. you smoking in windy conditions? wind will steal heat also

No wind whatsoever. Since I had to move recently due to job relocate, I have a car port that is enclosed on 2 1/2 sides. Odd setup, but wonderful for smoking in bad conditions!!!! Never affected by rain, wind, or snow.

I'll try to bump it up to 250 next time (I mean next week). I just hated to push the top end to keep it low n slow & to avoid temp spikes.

At least with the redi-chek it'll let you know if there's a problem.

to me, anything between 225 and 260 is low and slow......been doing my butts at 250 all along..........still comes out tender as a old maids love....
