Controlling temps in a drum
I've cooked chicken a couple of times in my drum and still have some questions about controlling the temperature. When I first put the coals in it the temp rises pretty fast up to 400 or so. I've been able to bring it down to 300 all right to cook chicken. To do that I close off all the holes on the bottom except for one and it's barely open while I'm "cooling" it off. Once it hits 300 I open up two holes about 1/3 to a 1/2 (use magnets) and it stays there ok.

Do you just keep the airflow restricted to bring it to 225 for pulled pork? Using one chimney of ranch coals on top of another chimney of un-light coals.

Thanks,

Phred
