Well, I goofed nicely...before retiring I agitated my coals with my magic elbow rod untill I could see red hot ash drop to the ash pit. Did this in several spots from underneath..Gave the ash door a nudge to the open side, checked thermometer, all was well, 230F.
From 1:30 am till 7:00 a.m. the fire took off and it was up to 325F this morning..My PP was done! 208F degree's with a quick check from my Polder Remote. OFf it came with super hard crust all around. Shrunk to 2/3 is original size. But let me tell ya, that crust is delicious. And underneath was some of the best pulled pork (I think that all the time) that I have ever eaten. Very stringy and no fats whatsoever left in that hunk a pork. Now to the hash browns and eggs to go with it..
Cheers to ya and good morning!
(BTW would I do Jalepeno mustard coat again..?? You betcha))
