Ok Mista, so use the minion method and I should be able to keep the temps lower?
My idea of the minion method: Set 20-25 unlit pieces of charcoal on the edge of the kettle, then lite 5-8 pieces and add to the unlit along with my chunk or chunks of wood. Wait 15 -20 min, then put the butt on?
Does this sound about right? Is my lit to unlit charcoal ratio ok? Thanks
