    We all have our own preferences. I would wrap since you already have a nice bark and color, plus it's already splitting. If it didn't have the nice bark at this stage I'd let it ride.

    the block and app will do 4

    Pretty much the same. Also wrap if the bark is getting too crispy

    That was original thinking. Guess I should just do one of each and see if there is noticeable difference in the end.

    brb... :D

    But will they interfere with each other if you had 2 or 3 blocks and 8 or 12 things needing probed?

    This question made me curious, My initial thoughts were no there should be no interference since its bluetooth/Wifi and how those systems work. Just to be sure I had to check and it shouldnt be a problem according to their FAQ!:
    "How many probes can I use with the MEATER app at once?
    The MEATER app can connect up to 4 MEATER devices simultaneously via Bluetooth, and 8 MEATER devices via MEATER Link."

    So based of that if I understand correctly you could have up to 32 probes if you ran 8 of the Meater Block devices via meater link or 4 blocks for 16 probes via bluetooth.

    Other butt close to done.

    Second butt. Falling apart as I was transferring it. Little fat cap remains held it mostly together

    Definitely not the same barq as expected but still good.

    Nekkid for sure wins out on pre tests.

    On Monday I'm going a pork butt on an unfamiliar smoker with no leave-in thermometer. What could go wrong?

    It's a Masterbuilt, I think, and it's been modified to use a tray for wood chips. I'm thinking that about 6 hours on the smoker should get her up to the stall at 160F or so, then I can wrap it in foil and put it in the oven for another 6-8 hours. If I keep the temp settings at 225F that should get her to 205F internal. I do have my Thermapen (green one is with me; red one at home) so I can verify temps when I pull.

    Anyhow, what could possibly go wrong?
