Ok guys, I'm trying my second butt. Had it rubbed down for 2 days in the fridge. Cleaned out the Egg, stacked fresh charcoal, got a small fire going. Added more coal. Put in Butt on rack over pan. Everything ok up until now. Temp got to 150, so started closing it down. Got the bottom vent to a slit, closed the daisy to a slit. Thought everything was going ok. Checked in 15 minutes, and temp was 300. It climbed to 325, but has settled at around 300. I've closed everything as much as I dare. What now? Do I wait until it drops on it's own? Is there any way to help it along? I'm afraid if I open it, it will just feed it more oxygen and make it hotter. How long should it take to drop on it's own? If I leave it for the night, will it drop and die out? Quick, somone tell me what to do! Will it turn out ok even though it is too hot? Rak
