So I did finally cook my ribs but it took a while. My drums was struggling to keep up in the rain with a single 3/4 ball valve wide open. When it was still dry and about 45 outside, the drum was cruising at 225-250 with the valve wide open. Once it started raining it got down as low as 150. That's when I pulled the meat. Both temps seem a bit low to me. I expected the temps to run at 300+ with the valve wide open and no rain. Am I missing something? Does this seem normal to you guys?

I will get more air inlets soon. I'm just waiting till the store has enough matching parts in stock.

Here's the ribs at 155 degrees, before I threw them in the oven for a quick finish.
