We fired up our new XL today for the 1st time. Decided to smoke a 14 lb turkey. Used BGE charcoal. Platesetter in place. Turkey on rack and in a drip pan. Stabilized the temp at 320 and loaded up the bird. Made a few minor adjustments and checked every 15 minutes or so. The temp stayed at between 300 and 330 for about 3 1/2 hours so we went in the house to make up the side stuff. Came back out 15 minutes later and the temp had taken off to 450. The vents were where they had been all day. Is there any reason for the runaway temp climb? Bird is a little crispy but will make some great turkey salad so we're not going to get in a twist over it. Life's too short. Any ideas? Thanks.
