I am having a hard time getting my temp to stay down. well actually its just to dang hot (325) I am using apple wood straight and have had the air intake completely closed for an hour and a half and the temp will not go down. I have the smoke stack half closed as well. Any ideas what I am doing wrong I am afraid I am going to ruin the two boston butts I have on right now. I did put some water on the hot coals but I dont want to put out the fire or stir up to much ashes. the internal temp has reaced 165 in 6 hours and I have put the butts in a aluminum pan with another one for a cover.
