Well the rain held off until I got everything going. I put a chimney cap on top to keep the rain out, and a baggie over the remote transmitter. I won't need to open until late this evening. You can't beat a BGE. Some French's mustard and Butt rub.

    Are those two flats?

    Yes sir, two flats.

    I would put some foil under the parts that are exposed outside the drip pan to cut down on the overcook possibilities.  Flats are tricky but even the singles and strike-outs are good in Q sammiches.  Enjoy the cook!

    Yep, I'll remember that next time. I'm still having trouble keeping my BGE smoking for over 5 hrs. So there in my oven at 230 degrees.

    The temperature was at 180, when I pulled them.

    Maybe a hiQ would help with ash flow. Could be charcoal with a lot of ash or old ash build up.
