Good morning folks,
Day off today, so fired the WSM for the first time this morning to to a 6 pound butt. I read here that it would run hot for the first few smokes. It is burning stable at 275 for the last 3 hrs with all bottom vents closed. I'm using Maple Leaf lump with sugar maple chunks, with a full water pan. Am I OK at these temps, or is there a way to bring it down a little. Just want to make sure I don't screw up my first butt. Have a great day.
