    I'm 6 hours into my second pork butt and everything's going great! Rubbed it yesterday at about 11 am. Took it out of the fridge at 2 this morning. Fired up my camp chef at 5 and had my 7.5lb butt in at 5:30.
    I think I've hit the stall at 160* but I'm going to be patient. Guests don't arrive until 6. I've also got a couple pounds of chicken wings waiting to go in closer to dinner time.
    I don't know if I'm getting better at this or if it's the cold weather but there's much less baby sitting/adjusting going on today and I'm holding steady temperatures. Yay!

    Good luck. My last 7.5# butt took 22 hours...

    22 hours?! My first butt was 7.25lbs and took 11. I figured the extra .25lbs wouldn't change too much. Ugh well we might just fine on sides lol.
