  • Larrymac, I had a similar issue and noticed that my lid hardware had become loose, thus leaving a 1/8" gap at the back of the BGE (and of course plenty of airflow).  I tightened the lid hardware and I could maintain a steady 225 degrees again.   …

  • WessB, The ribs look great! This will be my first eggfest, and since it lands on Cinco de Mayo I will be cooking some spicy chipotle brisket (best washed down with a couple of cold Coronas).[p]Poolman
