    Butts are funny ... sometimes they hit the plateau and other times they don't. Over the past couple days I did about #38 of butts and none of them hit plateaus.Total smoke time, including the foiling until temp reached 205, ran around 8-10 hours ...

    Really!!. I got an 8 lber done in 7 1/2 hours, so you never know. Of course your party can still go on, even if there is a rain out. [​IMG]
