    After 2 hours no meat will absorb any more smoke. That is a proven fact. So realize that you could smoke it on grill or smoker for those two hours and then finish it in your oven. So don't fret it. The most important thing is to cook it low and slow until it shakes like jelly. It usually does this once it reaches 205 degrees internally.

    When it gets to 150 it usually goes into what is called the "stall". It will sit at that temp for hours. To speed it along....wrap in tightly in foil with 1/2 cup of liquid...water or beef broth or stock....beer if you want.

    Make sure it is tightly wrapped with a tight seal. The liquid and the natural juices will break down the connective tissue and make it tender.

    Thanks, I definitely plan to wrap to get through the stall, as I've done previously with Boston butt. Thought about giving it a little more smoke, but will certainly look into just 2 hours. With the electric smoker and chips, I wouldn't go through much, but if it's not penetrating further, then I'll just let it sit at 225.

    Surprised the wife with an early Valentine's Day dinner last night. Got a nice black & blue on the tenderloins. First time doing lobster and it was a bit overcooked, but still delicious. Definitely doing to keep making it, as it was way easier than I thought it'd be.

    Thanks man. When I'm not using the Traeger for steaks (we got a snowshower yesterday so it wasn't an option), I've been doing the reverse-sear method with a cast iron, and the results have been pretty fantastic. I didn't even need to hardly press down with the knife, it was cutting through like butter.

    Beef broth from bones. Just took it off, 20 hours long.


    I didn’t roast the meat bones before, should I do that?
