Minion start (or whatever you call dumping a chimney of lit on a pile of unlit)
Guru dampener wide open
top vent wide open
I waited till the wsm was around 200 before I put on the guru. maybe I should have waited a little longer to put the guru on. Im just dumbfounded at how long it takes to recover temp and establish temps. I guess I just dont have enough lit. should be a simple formula Lit+O2=heat.
I have used a pitmaster 2x and both times I had to close off the top vent 80% to prevent overshoots. neither guru cook even came close to overshooting.
I do have the wsm stacker on mine but there is very little difference when naturally aspirated cooking
