Oh stop it
, okay carry on!
Looks like a wonderful cook! Wish I had a slider or 5!
Sounds like it took a bit longer to cook than expected. That does happen. My wife has learned that "it is done when it is done. I can't tell the meat to cook any faster!"
And then I go grab another beer!
Now, I do think the extra time had something to do with basting it too much. Everytime the lid is opened you add 15ish extra minutes. That can add up when you're cooking something for roughly 12 hours, maybe 14. I personally like to wrap the butt in foil somewhere around the 160 mark. Helps keep it moist while it finishes up.
Hope you had fun and I'm sure everyone just loved it! I know I would have!!
