You are in a stall - let it ride. The meat doesn't start to break sown till 190ish. If you want, you can foil the butt and put it back in the cooker - that will hep it get to temp. I don't pull my butts till there is no resistance when I stick them with the thermo - that is ysyally around 200 ish +/-

Sorry about that, but you learned you can't rush these things. There done when there done. I'm sure you'll hit a home run with the next one. We all make mistakes, but we get to eat em.
