Temps seem to be my weak spot. I was using a ecb and finally thought I had it figured out. Was bragging (bragging mod always backfires) about getting right at about 25 degrees outside. Next cook was about 40 out and I almost burned the insulation blanket right off the smoker.
Now I am learning a new offset smoker. Trying to learn not to put too much lump in at a time. Fire, fire, fire, temp, temp temp!!!! Oh yeah, the having people wait to eat thing can get to be a pain too!!!

Weber one touch gold (blue of course!)
