Sounds like a great plan Jeff gave you a good idea about cooktime. Butts are forgiving and warm up really well. B

Sounds pretty close on cook time. They take longer on my GMG than they do in the stick burners as they like to run around 260-280°. You can speed it up a bit if needed by foiling it at the stall. I add a cup or so of apple juice, then reserved the liquid, separate the fat and add a bit of it to the shredded pork for more flavor. Good luck, and don't forget the Q view!

Looks like this one had little to no stall. Sitting at 171 already. Only been at 215 220 the whole time.
Going to be an exercise in keeping it warm

When's dinner planned for?
Reheating may be preferable to over done'ing. :rolleyes:

GMG was a strong contender for me. And still might be as an RV grill.
If we ever go anywhere again... o_O:rolleyes:

If it gets done early, which can happen from time to time, just wrap in foil and put it in a empty cooler or cambro with towels, newspaper, pillows, etc. around it to fill in the empty space and it will stay piping hot for 4 hours or better. Seems like it's even better when this happens.
