Steady temp time

I just lit the fire for an overnight but cook. Last time I waited about 45 min for temp to stabilize at 250 degrees. That was around 11 o'clock at night I woke up at 6 in the morning and saw it was 350 degrees. Thank goodness the internal temperature was at 199 in the pork was perfect. My question is should I wait an hour and a half 2 hours before I put the roast on? Thanks

    Then I'll just have to pop open a few more beers. Oh wait I would have done that anyway

  • Once you get the hang, you won't need to but it's great practice to start early and get very stable before doing an all-nighter.

    That's what I love about learning curve it always involves more beer

    Glad it worked out-patience is a key attribute for BGE low&slow cooks.  That and plenty of cold beers!

    Happy B'day USA!
