Hope things work out for you. Very good advise to wrap and crank up the heat.
I am using the same setup that I have used many times. Kingsford blue minion method. I do usually wait until it gets to temp before laying down for a bit. Of course the one time I don't...

I wrapped it an hour ago and it is coming along nicely. Bluedawg almost had me talked into doing one hot and fast anyway so we will see how tender it is.

Thanks for the advice everyone!
