    Cut back on the coals used but, still, this thing runs HOT so must be watched. Gave the TT and overnight rub and 'hooked' it over offset coals using a Weber coal basket. I could cut back even more I believe to lower the heat level (maybe). Regardless, I pulled this off at 140 IT and let it rest before slicing on the bias. It had a beautiful bark and was absolutely moist, tender & delicious.....one of my best ever I believe.

    after the rest----no obscene comments...LMAO

    LOL.....yeah, funny contraption that took the edge off my desire to pop for a pellet pooper a month ago. Cooks like a volcano....wish it was a little deeper for hanging racks of ribs which is my next cook in it.....Willie
