    shut it down and wait. when it drops to 250, open it just a sliver.

    try not to shoot above your target temp next time.

    it won't be hurt at 325, just might not have much of a (cosmetic) smoke ring

  • G-OFF, for me to run my large Egg at 250 with a good set of glowing coals and hickory wood smoke, I have the bottom vent open about a finger's width and the top daisy slider closed, with the petals open about 1/8 inch. Hope that helps!

    Stike, I'm curious about the physics of the smoke ring. Why would a higher-temp cook reduce the smoke ring? Is it just a time factor, in that there's less time for the rxn to occur, or is there something else going on?
