pork butt help

  1. I am smoking a 10lb pork butt and after 3hrs at 220 its sayin meat is at 100.
    Does this sound right?
     
  2. Probably. It will slow down even stall somewhere around 155° or so. You want 200°-205° for pulled or 190° for sliced.

    Happy smoken.

    It could be right, every piece of meat has a mind of its own.  I usually smoke my pork butts at 230-235 or so.  Be sure you use a good thermometer to check temps.

    Yeah, bump your heat a bit.....I normally do butts at 250, some are smoking them even hotter now....fast & furious ala Myron Mixon. It will take as long as it takes.....have a beverage, enjoy the ride....Willie
