Hi All Why is IT taking sooo long to cook my Boston Butt bone in.
The BB weight is 5 1/2 lbs. started last night at 7 PM this morning at 7 AM, 12 Hrs later temp reading of 174. I let it cook for another 4 1/2 hrs., temp was 184.
I had to leave so I wrapped in foil. Came home now IT is in the oven un foiled cooking at 275
I check the smoker an food temps during the night, smoker temps 225-235, food temp around the 170's.
I'm using Maverick 732 to check temps. The Maverick is correct cause I checked it using boiling water, read 212
Even my briskets take awhile to cook/smoke.
I have a Master Forge Vertical Electric smoker. The BB was the only thing in the smoker, water pan filled with sand, if that matters any, also the lid was closed most of the time.
HELP!!!!

DanB
PS The Butt was smoking un foiled.

One trick I learned that really decreased my cook times. Let the meat come to room temp before you toss it in the smoker. Trust me it takes a lot longer to cook when you put it on at or near 40 degrees. I'll leave butts out on the counter 3-4 hours sometimes before firing up the smoker.

Sometimes when the internal temp reaches around 150 it hits a wall and starts sweating out a lot of the juice . The way to beat this is when it reaches 150 wrap it tight in foil and put back in the smoker . This will speed up the cook process and produce juicer meat . My butts cook for around 8 hours at 250 degrees

The stall is often a touch higher, I find it more often around the 160 - 165° mark, but I too tend to double wrap at that point, and allow it to power through.

Cooking on a UDS at 250 - 260° I cook 8lb butts in about 7 - 7.5 hours.

On the offset at the same temperatures it would take about 10 hours.

Last weekend cooked 2 nearly identical 8 lb butts. One took 12 hours to hit 200 internal temp, the other took nearly 4 hours longer! Must have been a tough old boar.. Very Happy
