Unfortunately it cooked faster than I expected while the wife and I went out to dinner and by the time I got to it the temp had reached 210! It is still good but definitely over cooked....oh well....just have to try it again! Thanks for the help.
I'm a beginner with a Napolean Apollo (same as your WSM).
You have more guts then me to walk away from your smoker and go have dinner! I'm way too paranoid, and want to keep an eye on it!
You'll get it next time!
