<chuckle> Yeah, that ain't happenin'. The smoker is my world, even though she's a complete enabler in that regard. At 0400 here, she was not about to get out of a cozy bed.That's why I suggested you should wake your wife, she should put on her slippers and go outside to refuel the cooker.
For anybody watching this, it's having a bit of a hard time maintaining temps due to another ash opportunity (that I really should have foreseen.) There's a spot just outside the firebox in the cook chamber flue that was nearly completely filled in with ash. I removed quite a bit, but there's still some left. I'll run this chute completely out, and clean it all out well.
