Fire for last nights shoulder went out. Help"

My fire went out last night on my 7.3 pound shoulder. I have it going again and the meat temp is at 126. I need to pull this off in four hours. Should I keep it low and slow at 250 or goose it to 325 and wrap in HDAF? Any other ideas? Thx!

    Bump it to 350 when it hits 140. Wrap in foil at that time.

    Heck of a way to discover Turbo - but better late than never! Will all work out fine.

    What brand of Charcoal were you using?

  • I've been using Nature-Glo, which is just the commercial name for Royal Oak. I've been using it quite a while with good results. Big chunks and usually burns well. Pretty much like the Wicked Good. This was really odd. I had it going well last night. Sitting right on 240 for at least two hours and then went to bed. Then again, there is a first time for everything! The shoulder is up to 183 and the fire is sitting on 347. Looking good. Thanks again to all.
  • Well, that worked out to be a very, very, good shoulder. I might be doing the turbo method again. Thanks for all the support. Eggland is a great group!
