Ok, I've had my egg 24 hours now (purchased at BBQ's Galore in Scottsdale, AZ). I fired it up yesterday, and for my first attempt, made jerky. The first piece I pulled was awesome. The rest I managed to burn to a crisp, as suddenly 2 hrs passed before I got back to it. Stupid mistake.[p]Anyway, as I fire it up for the second straight day, I have a question I wasn't able to answer yesterday. Today, I purchased the the dual daisy-wheel, while yesterday I messed with the lid on sideways. So now I have seemingly infinite vent possibilities, so my question comes down to this: Of the two vent locations, upper and lower, which plays a more critical part in regulating temperature. Its appearing to me the lower vent does the most regulation, but I'm now struck with a strong wonder for how significant the upper vent plays a role. [p]Yesterday's attempt taught me little, and today, before I forget and burn another batch of jerky (I'm going on a backpacking trip this weekend, and I'd like to bring homeade jerky...otherwise a juicy steak would be in order), I'd like any input the list can offer.[p]Thanks in advance,[p]Steve.
