Hey all, wish me luck 0 degrees here in Ontario Canada, Thaught I would try and throw on some pork picnic shoulders for the over night cook, Not feeding anyone just wanted to see if I could make it through the night, I dont have any gadgets just an egg filled with that Canadian lump you guys like and a platesetter and drip pan, no special therms or anything, Ill be impressed if I make it through the night.[p]Wish me luck[p]Steve

    otobiz,[p]External temp will have very little affect on the amount of lump you will burn overnight, as long as you keep the lid closed.[p]Get your temp stable before adding the meat, then add it and walk away. You'll be surprised how well it does.[p]Good luck!

    You don't need gadgets and you'll be just fine. Make sure that yu've loaded plenty of lump in the box and run your dome temps at around 275 to 300 with your platesetter in place...Many folks try to go for the sexy smoking temp of 225 and it's hard to maintain..especially if doze off for an hour or four....Run dome temps at 275 to 300 and you'll be happy with what you produce!![p]Ed McLean
