When cooking pork (ribs, butts), is it ok to have them cook between 200-250 or does it need to be at a set temp and not move? Like say 225 the entire time? Because I'm having a hard time keeping the temp steady. I am finding that I am having to open the firebox, slide a piece of wood to prop it open a little, and the obvious shut the air flow.

Keep your exhaust open 100% all the time.

Preheat your wood on top of the fire box if square, or inside the fire box away from the fire if round, 15 - 20 minutes before you are going to need to add those pieces to the fire.

Maintain your fire base at the size needed to heat the cooking chamber as hot as you want to cook.

If your temperature goes up or down 10 - 15°, so 235 - 250 - 265° is all around 250°, not as good as it could be but you'll get better with time it just takes practice.

Keep an eye on the fire base, if it starts to shrink, add more lit charcoal to build it back up.
