Plateau has arrived at lastFeared by some, dreaded by even more, the stall is here @ 7-3/4 hours and the temp was 149 @ 7-1/2 hours...temp climb rate has dropped to less than 1/2 of my previous observations, at a minimum.
If I can squeeze a 3-hour stall out of it, I'll be pulling it off at about 1:30 pm MST for a 2 hour rest. Then, it's time for the forks and some flour tortillas...yum!
My calculations are based on 3-hr stall and the 8.5*/hour temp climb I have observed for the past several hours. If it doesn't play some strange trick on me, that is. Chamber temps have been dead on at 210* for quite awhile now. I bumped it down when I hit about 135* internal to get let the higher temp (255*) soak in and finish into the 140*+ range. I did have one drop for a bit, at 180*. Seems to be working out great. I will mess with nuthin' at this point. Let the time tic away!
I just checked it again, 8 hours and 150*...
More to follow later. Thanks!
