Doing my first big cook on my Austin XL. Threw two pork shoulders on the left side running it at 300. About 10:30 I put two racks of spare ribs on the right side. Came back to check in an hour and they were at 196! Got a probe out and discovered that the right side of the pit was 140 degrees hotter than the left! I got lucky and didn’t burn them to a crisp I guess. Gotta love figuring out a new pit.
