Yesterday, I did a batch of ribs most of the day at 235 or so and the Egg was holding temp great.. Finished that cook and let the Egg stay at that temp or around there (250 or so) till I was ready to throw a 5 lb pork butt on.. I decided I needed some more lump so I poured that in.. Last check before bed around midnight and the temp was at 300.. Figured it would cook way too quickly and I'd have the wireless monitor going off in the early morning, so I closed the vents a little and hoped it would get back to 250 or so.. Wake up around 6 and the butt is at 178 internal.. Go outside and the dome temp is right around 200.. Get it rolling again at 250 or so and it finished around 10..

We had some places to go today, but I thought we'd be back within 5 hours or so.. So I FTC'd it.. We don't get back for over 8 hours.. The butt's barely warm.. Into the trash it went.. Didn't want to chance one of us getting sick.  And now I'm sick cause of all that went into it.
