Help! Pork butt cooking Fast

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am making pulled pork for dinner tonight for some friends. One of my pork butts is already at #180 and it is only 1. How long will it keep in my cooler before I need to pull it? 


Ugg this cold weather is causing me some issues today! Cold and windy is making smoking with my unmoded offset difficult. I has set up a make shit mod to keep my smoker warm. I took the base of my stand up brinkmann and have so e coals going  in that right below the air vent on the smoker. It is the best way I have found to keep my temps steady.

Check and make sure the probe tip is truly centered and your temp is accurate if the other butts are slower.  It will hold quite a while in a cooler (hours.)  I would wrap in foil and put it in the oven at 200 degrees and slow it down.  It won't take much smoke if any at this point.


Good Luck.

Let it go all the way to 200 for best results..


It will usually hold for 3-4 hours if it is wrapped in foil and in thick towels and placed in an empty cooler with towels, blankets,etc to fill in the remaining space.

Thanks for the help, I got the temps to even off a little in the smoker and the end up getting done and resting for a little under 2 hours and the turned out great. Thanks again for the help.
