sorry no pictures beside had i took them they would be faded out by now,  took so long...
Welcome to the SMF!

Took so long partly because you dropped it to fridge temps.  You probably weren't more that about 2 hours from finishing during the first round.  I've had butts and briskets take that long.  Once the meat gets to about 170* it moves off of the stall and climbs pretty quickly from there.

How did it shred after cooling and finishing the next day?
hi adio. it turned out pretty good, i used a made up rub of my own...i wasn't impressed with it...but i kept basting it and it turned out pretty good...i have had better  but i'm not sure the stopping staring hurt it all other then time...
