1st Daisy wheel
« on: July 15, 2019, 01:12:33 PM »
Hi guys I got my 1st Daisy wheel yesterday and Iím planning a brisket cook for the weekend. Not sure why but the vents seem a little daunting to me. Any tips with the vents to help regulate my temp easy?
Cheers in advance

It really depends on what youíre cooking and how youíre cooking it. Treat it like an OT...but it has a little more fine tuning.

Most grilling applications...all open, just alter your amount of lit coals (if you use a fully lit chimney, wide open, with an OT 22...itís exactly the same). If youíre running a snake, close them off a bit more when you get your desired temp dialed in and it should hold steady.

I find the fire control can be a little more fine-tuned by what bottom vents are open in relation to the food placement and the top vent placement.

You got this!

I believe the 3-wheelers are better for fine-tuning for low and slow (WSMs still use daisy vents[emoji848])

I typically place my coals in the back of my kettle and the vent underneath my hot zone closed completely; then I just use the two front vents to control air intake.  This way ash wonít clog up your intake vents and you donít have to keep adjusting the really hot vent underneath your coals.  Iím also vigilant to keep my daisy vents nice and clean by using using drip pans.

I agree and good tip, what's a drip pan? LOL
