<p />This one is a doozy. 22 hours and still goin.[p]Frickin cold in Chicago with wacky winds. The rings kept the temp right there at 250 or so throughout the day and evening. [p]I will conclude the length of the cook was because my butts were 33 degrees when I put them on.[p]No time to get then to room temp.[p]Happy day to all>[p]Mick

    Looking good, it will get there, sooner or later. Cold and foggy here in West Sacramento Ca. but no where near the kind of cold you're having.[p]Now if only my thermapen was made for lefties???????????
    Try using it in you left hand and see what happens. LOL
    Not my fault I'm backwards. Big Grin.[p]Merry Christmas,

    Merry Christmas Mick!
    Could be the cold butt, but the last one I egged 2 weeks ago was still frozen in the center when I inserted the probes. My Thermapen confirmed it cauz my probes didn't even register 32° until 2 hours into the cook. It came out fine though and about 4 hours sooner than I expected. I bet the wind is more of a factor with yours...just my 2 cents worth!

  • MickeyT,
    If you start to run out of time wrap them in foil, put back in Egg and keep a close eye. That should get it up to 190 range pretty quickly (1-2 hours?) even at the same egg temp. [p]Brett
