Good day all...(using a webber kettle)
I am having a bit of trouble here. My temps keeps bouncing from 200-300. Tell me what i'm doing wrong....
I first toss a full chimney in and wait till she gets down below 250, then i toss on my meat. It slowly starts to cool down, and after about an hour and a half she's down to about 200, so.....in anticipation of this i fill the chimney and lighting it 20 mins or so prior, and once it gets down to about 2 (looks like the coals are all burnt out?) i toss another full chimney on but...that brings it back up to about 300 more 20 mins or so. I know i'm doing this wrong, Maybe i should just toss a handfull or 2 of lump on the burning coals once it gets down instead of getting them all fired up in the chimney to toss them is...but are they gonna catch is what i'm affraid of?
I've read about this "ring method" which sounds quite inticing. Sounds like it is just a matter of lighting it once and letting it burn for my whole 12 hr smoke or so? (just doing an 8 lb butt).
If anyone has the time to explain this method, or the link on how to do it...it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much in advance...
