Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Altitude cooking temps.

I've seen on other posts about subtracting 1 degree for every 500 ft. in elevation. So boiling water at sea level is 212 and at 5,000 ft. would be 202. If I'm pulling meat off at 125 at sea level, does that mean I'd pull it off at 115 at 5,000 ft? Or is 125 at sea level and 125 at 5,000 ft. the same temp. If temp. is the same would it just cook to 125 faster at the higher altitude?

Thanks, Bill
