Up the creek without a therm.....

Im in Va. at my sister in laws for her reunion and started cooking last night on the WSM. When I turned on the Maverick, I noticed the meat probe was running almost 50 degrees hotter than the smoker probe. Long story short, I did my first butt cook without a thermometer and judged finish by "pulling the bone". At 11 hours, the bone came out clean and when I started to lift the butts off, they fell in half easly. They appeared moist and are foiled and resting now. I plan on pulling them in about 4 hours, so Ill know more than. Heading out to a local Williams Sonoma to get a new probe and hopefully score some sale rib racks...
