Followed Elder's saged advice on laying a good fire last night and at 6pm put a well seasoned 7 1/4 lb butt on the Egg. The fire raced up to 300 for a while but managed to stabilize it before I went to bed. When i woke this morning it was solid at 200 degrees in the dome and 185 internal. The trick is certainly in how you lay the fire. Previous attempts have always gone out. Now.. I hope I can keep my hands off it for a few more hours!!!! Its been in for 15 hours and the internal is at 195....
Patience is a virtue...!
