Pork butt stall

Discussion in 'Pork' started by olmy, Aug 31, 2013.

  1.  I have a 7.5 lb bone in butt that has been in my MES at 220 for 12 hrs and has stalled at 163 for 2+ hours now. Looking to have it for dinner tonight, would bumping up my temp to 240 ish work to break it out or should I just ride it out?

    Myself, I foil the pork butt at this point, but I'm not a huge fan of bark.  Others on the forum will bump up the temp a little to power through the stall. And those with iron nerves tough it out.  Since you are on a tight deadline, I'd recommend foiling or bumping up the temp.

    Good luck!  Be sure to post Q-view!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend,

  3. I bumped my temp to 240 and we are on the move again! Up to 180 IT now and the guests are drooling, I cant wait!

    Worry not Q views to come later, thanks for your help.
