So, I've fired the new egg up twice this weekend and been pleased. I fried the probe for my Taylor probe thermometer a year ago while brewing, so I just placed my order for a Maverick ET732, as well as 8oz of Dizzy Pig Coarse. My main concern is stabilizing the dome at 250, but I feel like I'll get it done.
With doing a butt, and trying to keep the temp down, should I be concerned about what the coals look like? I presume that not all will be lit by the time I've hit temp and am ready to put the butt on. Just with all the reading on 'letting the VOCs burn off, etc.' I'm curious if the same concepts apply.
Just gotta find some pecan chunks now. Anyone know what the selection is like at the mothership? I'm guessing I'll go by there some time this week. Just don't want to hang myself out to dry if all they have is chips. Where do you guys get your smoking woods?
