You can never tell how a chunk of meat will smoke they all are differant and the meat might or might not stall it could smoke fast or slow. So count your blessings it went fast and not slow. I have had they go to 16 hours before and some 7-8 hours there are alot of varibles. Wind, temp outside, and smoker it'self
