300 was just for the burn in. It will be low and slow from here on out. I figure that figure that 225-250 will be a bit trickier, but it did responded to changes to the air intake better than I expected it to so maybe it won't be too frustrating.

Nice it got through the first burn OK.

Just discovered my thermometer reads high. My peak temp at burn-in was probably 275°...

I've got chicken breasts & ribs in today. It's been slow going, but now that I have corrected for the thermometer, things are moving right along.

Ran a small brisket through last night and was the best I’ve done so far. I’m slowly getting the hang of this...

:yth: note taking enables you to recreate something down the road. And one day, when you get old and forgetful, it helps too.. :D
