I was fortunate enough to be able to borrow a digiQ and I cooked a few butts. I had a problem that I have not seen anyone else mention.
I put the butt on at 10 pm. Set the pit to 250 and the meat for 198.
I lit the egg and let the guru get it up to temp. When it hit 250, there was some blue smoke still coming out so I let it sit for a while before putting the but on.
About 20 mins later, I looked and the pit temp was 270 (20 over what it was set to). I closed off the vents and waited for it to cool off. Once it got down to 250, I opened them up and put the butt on.
I woke up at 6 am to check it. The meat was at 215 and the pit was at 375!!!!
Here were my settings:
6.5 lb butt
daisy wheel barely cracked open (1/8 in?)
The blower opening 1/2 open.
Brand new lump. Biggest chucks on the bottom.
For the record, I have no issue keeping the dome temp at 250 for 5 + hours when cooking ribs.
What in the world did I do wrong?
