Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

BGE temp not effected by vents?

So I vacuumed and cleaned my BGE.
Put in new nice size pieces of hardwood lump((Royal Oak).
Maverick grill temp is 250+/-10. For several hours.Take out ribs put in aluminum foil-- back in BGE and close. Maybe took a minute.
Now temp is 340 and even with Exhaust closed and bottom vent closed it barely budges. Having to take ribs out now before they overcook. Why is this happening?

    I would check the calibration of your thermos-"stuff" doesn't just happen-air-flow controlled fire burns very constant and predictable.  Once the BGE ceramics get hot then it will take quite a while to cool.  FWIW-

    Did your top metal cap (I never can remember what its called) swing open when you opened the Egg?  It took me a couple cooks to figure that one out
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
