Texaspete

Hi

i am just about to smoke a 13lb brisket and thought I would do some ribs first.

i could not get my usual Weber briquette and the guy at the store sold me some heat beads instead.

i used 4kg for my ribs and can't even get the temp
to 250 it's fluctuating between 212 and 220.

im using a wsm, I'm 2 hours in vents fully open and can't get to temp.

i have 8kg of these beads left and I'm concerned about starting the brisket. 


these beads seem terrible.

i used the minion method.

i plan to use the minion method tonight.

i have been using Weber briquettes with no issues for months.

please help.

I would love to help but I have no idea what beads are. I would not cook the brisket until you have the temperature control p[roblem solved.
