I have used mine several times and maintained it under 230 degrees yesterday for a pork butt for over 12 hours. Everytime I close the new vent it shuts down the Egg as well as the ceramic cap. It is air tight. I love it.I am using mine for the first time today on a brisket. I have not been able to maintain a temp below 300. I can deal with 300 but my bottom vent is almost completely shut and the top vent is as closed as I can get it. If I wanted to cook at 250, I would be in trouble. Have any of you had this issue? Also, how do you shut the Egg down. From what I can see, the new vent will not completely plug all three holes. Will post pics later.
