Yeah, I'll give the chimney more time next go around. It was cold outside and I was ready to start smoking so I rushed it. Looked like a bonfire until shut the bottom vents down to snuff out the flames. Luckily, I hadn't put the butt on yet at that time.
I thought about putting the rub on the night before but I was worried about the salt in the rub drawing out the moisture. It did give me something to do as the grill was heating up however.
