    Welcome to SMF! Please post a picture of your finished butt. Everyone on the forum likes the q-view pictures. They will even give you a little arm twisting if you forget.

    sounds like you've got it all under control.  Are you ready for the stall?  are you thinking of foiling or no.  The last few ive done I haven't foiled, I really have gotten hooked on the bark.  don't forget the pics!!!!

    :yahoo: She maybe slowly coming out of the stall, 171 degrees now. Yep, Covered it in foil with Apple juice when I bumped her up to 260 earlier. Had a nice black bark even at 4 hours in. They need to bottle that smell comin out the vent!

    Ok she has come up,a whole degree in one hour. 172 now. Maybe I need to search for temp probe placement. Patience is bitter ,but the fruit is sweet. :devil:
