My start is a little rough...
Major mistake and used the minion method to start it up. I am having a tough time bringing the temp down to where I want it at 225F. Having to choke the fire down. Not something I like to do.
I am staggering the cook to accommodate for the different meats, and only have the 17lb brisket in the smoker.
The temps with a full water pan easily shot up to 265F in little over an hour, i added boiling water to the pan to speed the temps up :)
I am guessing I am going to burn through a lot of charcoal because of this mistake...
