    I think you might be right. I took my instant read out to the smoker and checked another portion of the butt and it read 141 whole the digital read 161.

    Thanks for the tip and I went ahead and move the probe.

    Just foiled the butt. Sorry I forgot to take pictures before hand but there was a nice layer of bark on it.

    I will make sure to take pictures when I get ready to pull.

    I'll second moving it to the thicker part. I usually probe it in at least one other area before pulling to foil just in case I was in fat. I once did one and pulled it at 165 foiled it put the thermometer back in to get a reading of 147 after checking a couple other areas figured I must of been in some fat the first time
