Re: Nak OP problem
Yeah, Nick, methinks you may have started smoking it a bit too soon. I like to let it sear for a good 5 to 7 minutes while rotating the coals around frequently to maintain an even sear around the bowl. Then, once that 5 to 7 minutes is up give it a test pull or two to see how it goes. 99% of the time it's right on by then. Hope you get it ironed out. Smoke happy.
