Newbie problems getting right temp.
I have my XLBGE in the table and have a few smokes under my belt. Love it! I smoked a Boston Butt today and wanted to start the cook around 225-250 and the egg zoomed up past 350 after lighting and wouldn't come down much. So I finally shut the daisy wheel and the bottom to slow it down and ended up putting the fire out. So, I restarted it with the little lighting stick and it was pretty manageable after that. My first start was with a chimney starter and I'm wondering if that gets it too hot too quickly for a low and slow. Suggestions?
