Lesson Learned

I cooked two butts starting on Friday night, removed yesterday around 4PM as the pork temp was at 200. I removed everything from the LBGE and added some fresh lump (on top of lump still burning from butt cook) as I had some wings and pig shots to cook before the 7PM game. Well - the egg would not get above 225 as I guess the vents were clogged after the butts had cooked for almost 18 hours. Lesson learned = wiggle the lump before just adding more after the long cook.
