I haven't looked into the science behind that, but it seems to make sense.

So, have a lower pit temp will keep the meat below 140 degrees longer and should theoretically give a better smoke ring. It will also take longer to cook, so the meat will be exposed to more smoke.
Yes, the 140 went right along with what I heard about the 200f. Good article! Thanks!
