    I'm not sure why but I can't upload pics right to the forum after I have done already done some. Not quite sure why it will let me upload a few, then it tells me the pic is too big to upload for this format. Weird...

    Thanks! These butts actually have hit 2 stalls! They stalled this afternoon at 176deg, and then stalled again tonight at 184! They are at 188 now and they're coming up on 14 hours!

    The butt on the diffuser rack didn't do so well. Actually the other three didn't fare so well either. I made a total beginner mistake and only put a temp probe in the one butt on the lower rack. When that butt got to 200, I took them all off the drum, wrapped them and put them in a cooler, and went to sleep for a few hours. (It was after midnight) when I woke up, the butt that was on the diffuser rack was waaaaay over cooked. It was dry and tough. The other 3 on the top rack were under cooked. They were cooked to a safe temp, but judging by the way there was still a lot of fat and connective tissue inside them, they never made it out of the stall. So, I learned a hard lesson. No two pieces of meat cook the same, and to use a temperature probe on each one so that I know if they are ready or not. Well, at least I got the pork butt for $1.29 per lb. and it didn't set me back too far.

    Sorry to hear the cook didn't fare as well as you'd hoped. The next time will be better.

    Sorry to hear that the cook not where optimal but the wedding went well I hope. I just got my probeholder from mavric and might get an order for 20 - 30 persons so my alternative is to build another drum. Or modify the one I got. Thanks for the feedback. Ill come back how this went, if i get the gig.
