n00b in Portland

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
What's up, figured I'd introduce my n00b self here after lurking for a week. Got a Brinkmann vertical for Christmas, seasoning it right now. Noticed the temps are stalling around 170 or so, but I bought the basket ($4.19 on clearance at Lowes btw) to replace the current charcoal basket with no air holes. Hope to get my first pork butt on their this weekend.

I just thought about another way for you to get smoke - look for the posts on the minion method and set up the smoke portion that way - have not tried it but it might work just for the smoke not the heat

Welcome fellow Portlander! Oregon? Just be aware that if it is windy your temps will stall out like that, unless you can get a wind block set up. Cold you can work around, but wind is a killer. Hope to see some good Qview! Grats on your present and welcome to the forums!
