Default Overshot target temp w/ Guru-on WSM

I just tried my Guru DigiQ II on my WSM, and I overshot mt target temp of 240 the first time. After I added water and added the meat, the temp seems to have dropped. It's climbing slowly back up now. I used the minion method of starting with 25 coals. Regular K'...Is there anything I can do to make sure I don't overshoot the next time??? Thanks in advance for your help!!

I always add hot water right after I light put in the lit charcoal. Seems to me that waiting to add the water is your problem.

You probably did what i did, you didn't read what Fred and the boys said about using the guru on a wsm. Its ok you're a guy, thats how we roll

A) No more water ( I do the clay pot)
B)top slivered open, if at all
c)8 lit coals. dump them in and button it up immediately
The rule from fred is "Let the guru do all the work".

It works better than all the methods I first tried by a factor of ten

Correct me if I'm wrong but I understand that it is best to start the target temp low and work up after the meat is added.
