Ribs in the wind

If my WSM is going ot roll away then this will be the day it happens. I have a nice little gust outside but ribs are on anyhoo.

Thanks for getting my order to me so timely Larry.

This is my first run with all lump. When the temp hit 200 I shut the vents down to 1/2. As the temps approched 260 in the dome I shut the vents down to 1/8 assuming the temps would stabalize at 250-260 in the dome.

The temps feel 20 deg very quickly. Is it normal for lump to respond to minor adjustmets like that.

I am not complaining. If anything I am glad that temps responded so rapidly. I had to open the vents back up to 1/4 and slowly build back to 255 where it is now.

I find that lump is usually pretty responsive. Most times mine chuggs along at 245 with the bottom front two vents 1/4 open the top wide open and the back vent completely closed.

My next mod may be some way to adjust the vents without standing on your head.

I like the way Kingsford holds temps but once the temps get out of control there is no turning back. For me it is very hard to get the temps back down. Lump is much better in that respect.

LOL I singed my hair one day trying to see how open the vents were. Got a wee bit too close for comfort.

I have gotten much better since then.

A few people I know have marked the vents with heat resistant paint to make it easier to see.

I find after a while you just get used to it.

Cliff, I use the tip of my finger to feel the hole since I can't really get all the way down to see how open the vents are. You get a feel for how much they should be open after awhile.

I use my finger tips also Larry, that is why I have no fingerprints on my left forefinger.

After seeing Larry do that at SOTB I don't even look at the vent.
I just use my finger. (and yes.........it hurts sometimes )

Batten down the hatches Cliff! Good luck with the lumpski
