Hi everyone, I just had my large egg delivered this past week and I've been using a bag of charcoal just so I can play around with the temps a bit. I'm trying to get it to hold at 225 to smoke a pork butt later this week, but to no avail. My hope is to get her set at 225 and leave her over night.
I have the plate setter to use, but any tricks of the trade you care to share to help me out -- all are greatly apprciated. I've played with the daisy wheel and bottom vent, can get 225, but doesn't stay there for sustained periods of time. I thought I had it before going to bed last night, but I woke up to a cold egg. Perhaps I really need to pile in the charcoal? Also have some blocks of cherry and apple chips that I plan on soaking in water to give a bit more flavor.
All thoughts and ideas...tricks...are welcome. Thanks! I'm really looking forward to smoking a pork butt soon!
