I went old school to control temp manually... and while it was like riding a bike, I sure like the convenience of the Smobot and will go back to using it for future cooks.
Anyhow, back to the lamb. I did not go crazy with getting it ready to cook, just used this recipe
Fired up the egg and brought it up to a steady 300 and I made a few adjustments on the vents after adding the lamb to bring the temp back to 300 quicker. I did not time it, but I would guess that I was not as efficient as the Smobot. I would much rather sit in my chair and drink knowing the Smobot is dead nuts on the temp. I suppose some would argue that if I was rock steady at 300 before placing the lamb that I should not bother messing with the vents and just let the egg do its thing.
Egg @ 300 and lamb placed:
Just about ready to pull.
A view of a couple of slices, if the pic does not say it... it was tasty.
I used the iGrill to monitor temp and then probed with Thermopen. It took 2hrs and change for just shy of 5lbs to cook.
