ECB won't stay above 200 unless you keep adding wood and keep the door open so it gets air. ECB instructions say not to let wood touch element. Well I have been feeding that thing all day just to keep it going. Is it alright to let the wood touch element? Another thing is I have gone through a big bag of misquite wood chunks. Put this 3.5lb roast on at noon and took it off at 5 at 170 degrees (internal)and it is in the cooler as we speak in foil. Is a person better off just using charcoal and taking the element out? The element sits on all that lava rock which is going to be really dirty now that I have piled wood on the element all day. Please help!!!
