Tempature control - first time cook
Today was first time cook with my large green egg and did baby back ribs. I was fine at about 240 degrees for first thirty minutes of cook so went to do an errand. When I got back home temp was 350 degrees and while I tried several things mentioned in forums, I could not bring temp down below 325.
I think I may have gotten fire to hot to start as I let coals burn for about 10 minutes and then put three chunks of wood and closed lid and bottom vent to 25 percent open but left top vent open. How long should I have left lid up with initial lighting and. Then when do I add wood. Thanks for the advice.
