It was about 2:20, but at 2 hours I could tell the chicken was not where it should be so I opened up vent full. I was able to get some more heat and finish it off but still was not done enough and the tips of the breast were starting to dry out.
I put my cyberq in after the cook just to see where things were and had about 303. I closed the vent down to 1/4 and temps stayed about 300-320 for the next several hours. It burned for about 6.5 hours total.
I guess it could have been charcoal but it was bought at HEB then used pretty quick. I followed the manufacture instructions.
I just hate the risk for -turkey day
Thanks for the reply's as I walk through this moment of grief and sadness
