Mike, did you run a guru on the Backwoods? My WSM is predictable, but the meat isnt. Never know if a butt will hang and for how long. usually hangs about 160 for 90 mins then rises quickly. As long as i know this happens, its no big deal.
Only experience I have with the backwoods was cookin with 3eyz and he has all the toys from BBQ Guru. That was sweeeet!
I support PETA - People Eating Tasty Animals
