nice looking rigs righteous dog.
after my 6th cook now, i figured the spike wasnt really a spike. my smoking wood was smoking rather heavily initially causing the temps to be lower (albeit 220-230). once the smoke settled down it wasnt choking the fire out hence the increase in temp. i need to just wait a bit longer for it to dial in before leaving it alone. my buddy is bringing me 30ish lbs of boar he shot down in FL tomorrow. wish me luck, its my first boar cook.
