Pork Butt Temp Question

Joined Jan 6, 2008
Hey gang. I know this has been tossed around before, but had a unique problem this morning and need some opinions.

Had my smoker rolling at 240F at 7:00AM. Threw in the injected/rubbed butt. Apple Juice, sugar and salt injection.

Wind literally picked up to 40 MPH for a good hour and a half, and it took nearly 2 hrs to get the smoker back up to 225F, hovered around 170F and slowly climbed.

Going on 4 hrs in the smoker now and the internal temp according to my wireless probe is 136F.

Should I be OK with the 2 hr stall? I realize it is not 140 internal, but I am almost positive that outside .5 likely hit very early on. Never had a big stall like that. Had no way to block wind.

Your fine.

136 is close enough.
