I woke up a little late this morning and thought I could smell BBQ. I went to roll over and realized that I could smell Q because I had put a couple butts on the Egg last night.
Checked the remote and I had an internal of 181.

Everything looks good... had to break a little piece of bark off to make sure it is good. Still 20 degrees to go!

I ran out of lump so I cooked this with briquettes and I can't believe the difference in ash. I actually had to clean some out for air flow this morning. It's been going 12 hours now and it was cold and rainy over night. I set it for my sweet spot with lump and I came up almost 50 degrees low. I had to open the vent a bit more than usual but once it settled it stayed steady all night. I usually do the butts on my UDS because I don't want the mess in my egg but with the wind and rain I thought the egg would be more efficient. It was but what a mess of my platesetter!
I'm off to my local fish market to pick up some salmon for the wifes birthday.
