    I think if I was shooting for 450 and it wanted to settle at 470 I would not worry about it one bit and just cook at 470....just my opinion

    stainless steel cap, and thats cool. Im not one of them since this does the same thing. Naysayers always gonna say nay (unless its one of their tricks of course)
    Love the idea, and this will work great to maintain daisey wheel settings, but how will this help to keep the rain out? Isn't that the point of the stainless cap?
  • Re: rib - failure

     I light my Egg with an electric starter, so the fire is centered from the cast iron bottom plate to near the top of the lump and (burns outword as the cook continues).

    I basically do the same but I only light the top middle for a low-n-slow. It would only make sence that if you move your smoke wood out to the sides, as the fire spreads it will find more wood. I smoked a brisket Saturday and had smoke for 8 hours. Then Sunday relit same charcoal for steaks and still had smoke chips around the sides.(btw I don't soak chips)
