Boston butt, but Im asking in general. Do you have to wrap anything that stalls?
Thank you so much, this clears up alot of my questions!! You're the best!NO.
Big meat stalls because of the science of how it heats, once the outer layer of a meat gets done it starts to block the heat from reaching the 'inner' layer.
Briskets are wrapped in paper once you see you have enough 'bark' or around the 'stall' (165-175), then the temp is raised and cooked till 203 IT
Pork butts are NOT wrapped during the cook at all... a stall at 165 will occur with every butt, but, these are cooked till done... 201° IT .... THEN THEY ARE FOIL WRAPPED, towel wrapped, and placed in a cooler for anywhere from 1-4 hours to 'rest' and the tissues break down and get juicy.
Ribs are wrapped after 3 hours of cooking, usually for about 2 hours in foil, then after that cook more or not, up to your liking.
Sorry I wasn't around at the time but didn't you see where we all wrap BUTTs after they are done for at least an hour... did you do that and did it turn out ok????Hey Slim, I put boston butt on at 1am, I'm just now taking it out if smoker 19 hours later!! It was 7.4 lbs at 225 degrees, does that sound right? 19 hours? P.s. I didn't wrap her!
Looks quite yummy! Beats a midnight snack of potato chipsI wrapped it for 3 hours after I took it off the smoker. It smoked a total of 19 hours to get to 202, then I wrapped for 3 hours. Lol it was midnight so I said F it, put it in fridge and went to bed! I just pulled it now it looks and tastes great!
As mentioned in the Pork Shoulder thread I’ll be smoking a bone in shoulder. I’ve never done mine unwrapped (letting it ride the entire time). Was thinking about leaving 1 of 2 unwrapped. I have a 7 and 7.5 pound. Approximately how long would the 7lb take unwrapped? I am thinking about starting in the evening.I don't wrap butts. I do make sure there is a drip pan underneath with water for most of the cook. They tend to take 20-22 hours for my butts to be finished though.
