What charcoal are you using?
How far open are your vents?
Is your bowl full of water?
How many lit coals did you start with?

You probably just need to open the bottom vents more.

Pit to temp before introducing protein, cardinal rule.  Stabilization first, then cook just like preheating an oven.  WSM is very different from the SmokeFire.

Donít give up on the WSM.  Once you get your method honed, theyíre really fun to cook on.  Iím sure your pork turned out great!

I did a packer brisket and two pork butts on my 18 wsm once.   I had to keep all vents wide open to maintain 250.   It ran through a full load of coal in 6-7 hours, which normally, would last 12 with a single butt.  Fortunately, I made it to the wrap.   35+ pounds of cold meat was quite a heat sink.  It was also cold outside.  Iíll never do that again or at least I learned that cooking a lot of meat at once really changes the cooking dynamics. 

A pellet grill would have the same problem.  It would use more fuel and the convection fan would run a lot more often.

Once you figure out your WSM you're going to love it. My stick burners have been collecting dust since I got mine.
