Temp control on bge

edited 11:03AM in EggHead Forum
Had plenty of lump coal in the egg at 6:30 P.M. Fri. night. Put on 6 lb. Boston Butt. Stabilized temp at 200-2l0 and it did well until I went to bed at 10:30. It was l50 at 3:00 a.m. I stabilized the temp by adjusting vents and watched it for about 45 min. Then at 7:00 was 300. I watched it often rest of day and upped temp to about 250-260 last 2 hours and took meat off when it was l90. The pork was great. Do you have to watch the temp more than I did? Especially during the 5 hr. period when I slept. Thanks for info to this rookie.[p]Ray Price

    Ray Price,
    Next time set the dome temp around 250*. It is easier to maintain it those temps. That should eliminate the problem you just experienced.

  • Ray Price, Yo, whats up??
    I did my first all night cook a couple of weeks back and was amazed.....went to bed (midnight) after egg was stabalized @ 250º, woke up at 7:00ish am and friggin egg was still @ 250º.....after 7 hours.....I didn`t have to touch it for hours after that..
    It went all that time without a hiccup....I was impressed to say the least......

    Ray Price, in agreement with JJ - you'll have much better luck in the 240-260 range - especially when it's cold.[p]
