Fired up the new Mini today and can not get the temps below 300 Deg. Want to do a tri-tip later but 300+ seems to hot. I have both bottom vents shut, just closed top vent about half, not sure if this will help. Nothing special on the build, been watching the builds on here and copied.
Here it is after adding hot coals to the top
I think the wood chunks took off, was over 400 deg with the only one vent on the bottom 1/2 open
Have two probes on grate, Found out if I turn the lid so the top vent was in the middle of the probes it would get a lot closer side to side.
Started the test burn at 11:30 this morning, the next two were taken at 2:00, hard to tell what is left.
Any help on lowering the temp would be great.
