Hello,[p]Cooked my first set of ribs on the small yesterday but had an issue with temperature control. I filled the charcoal up to the lower portion of the fire-ring, and started a small fire using a Webber fire cube off to the side of the pile.
For about an hour, I was running a smooth 260*. However, I went to the store to pick up some,,err,, refreshments, and came back only to realize the temp had shot up to 350*[p]After allowing the temp to decrease by shutting the vents and closing the rain cap completely (I don't have a daisy top), I brought the heat to a managable 280*. [p]Does anyone recommend a a technique for charcoal set-up that would prevent this spike?[p]PS Ribs were still great, just want to make them even better![p]Thanks
