Today I had the mes30 right at 280* and I have 2 shoulders on there. Put them in at 4:30 am and not they are at 187* and 194*. Took a peak and they look great. I like it that they will be able to rest a couple hours before pulling.

I'd rather use the charcoal for ribs, chicken or pork loin or a smaller beef roast, get more out of the bag that way.
Mine are cruising along now at 280*.
