Fire went out. Panic time. Got it going again. Lost about 15 deg. meat temp., but its back up to 155 now. Dome temp now 260
I got one of those remote temp sensors/sending unit combination gizzmos. Kind of neat to be able to stay close to TV, fridge and recliner and still know what the Q is doin. Ahhhh this is the life.

    g-o,[p]Not the smoothest of cooks, yes. But it is a great learning cook. Since your internal dropped and came back says that you have the probe inserted in a good piece of internal meat and can rely on what it reports.[p]I'd suggest only sipping the liquid refreshment as this cook will finish in the wee hours. What is coming is a slow rise in internal temp and the plateau. This is when the internal temp simply stops rising. At this point, smile and understand that now the collegen and gristle that makes the meat tough is being slowly dissolved into great flavor. It is important to the end product to wait this period out. Keep a consistant dome temp and be patient.[p]I am all smiles. Been there and now love the experience. Do the cook for the making of the meat - it reheats very well.[p]Spin
