Getting Temps down to 225-250?
I am going to attempt my first brisket. I have know trouble getting my egg hot, I can't seem to get it below 300 to smoke it. I have been attempting to get all the lump lit and then bringing the temp down by closing the dampers. It seems to get as low as 300 and stops. Should I just keep waiting for it to go down? If so when I open the dampers a little to give it air; making sure it does not go out will it heat back up to 300.
