I have experienced several massive flashbacks when cooking
steaks at high temps. I like to get the
dome temp up to about 700 with the bottom vent wide open and the daisy wheel
completely off to get the cast iron grates as hot as possible. Once I get the dome temp up around
700, I put the daisy wheel back on, slid wide open. The temp drops very quickly to around
500-600. When I burp it, opening about 2
inches, I always get a huge flash with flames rolling out for 3-4 seconds. Obviously, it’s not good for the gasket and
it makes it really difficult to put the food on and then to flip it. Is
there anything I can do differently to reduce the flash…short of cooking at
much lower temps?
Do the pizza experts experience something similar when cooking at such high temps? TIA
