Well fired up the Pitmaker this morning to do 3 shoulders. I used high temp duct tape to seal the intake around the guru adapter. I lit using only a chimney of lump and I gradually moved the Guru temp up to make sure the pit temp wouldn't shoot over the temp I had the guru set for. When I reached 225 I put water in as reccomended. I have been playing with damper on the fan all day trying to find a sweet spot. I have had to reload the lump twice using a chimney at a time. I just wrapped the shoulders and look to be on the home stretch.
The good thing is the temps never spiked! I did hover over the pit all day but that is to be expected when learning a new smoker. Tomorrow I am loading it up with ribs and we will see how that goes.
