problem lighting egg thru lower vent
i think im just going to use this method for roasting and searing temps and no longer for low and slows. i posted a wekk ago about a butt not getting a bark to develope, used rub and sugar on that one. this time used rub sugar and mustard, a babyback rub from cabellas mixed with redeyeexpress and a cup brown sugar and the usal frenches mustrd. heres an 8 pounder at 12 hours almost done, notice the bark not developing, notice its wet, notice the raw mustard where i lifted it. i had to remove the stone, raise the temp and cook direct to get the bark to form which gave it a slightly burnt flavor. im sticking with lighting from the top from now on for long overnight low and slows. it does not make sense to me but this is twice in a row for me
