I started with two closed and one cracked, with the top vent open. Then closed the top a bit and it started coming down. Threw a yard bird on a little while ago. Opened two bottom vents and the top, to cook the bird.
Still need a 22 yellow

275* is the new Low & Slow

I've been competing since 2007 and used WSM's. 2010 we were the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association Team of the Year and we cooked all the way to the Jack Daniels exclusively on two 22" and two 18" WSM's. 

There is a lot of misinformation in this thread and when I hear people mentioning a snake in a bullet I just wanna scream!!

@swamprb How do you recommend keeping her from running. I'd be fine in the 250-275 range, but when she suddenly runs off to 290-300. This last time I was able to corral her a bit, but I had to tamp the top vent about 50%.

It was just a thought. Amazingribs.com recommends it. Usually the advice over there is pretty good.
