We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

I am a new egg owner. My first experience was to roast two chickens and did this at 450. This turned out well. I was probably overly ambitious for my first cooking and thought I could cool the egg and put a butt on to cook. I closed the vents and dropped the heat to about 300. I left both the bottom vent and daisy wheel open to about 1/8". Since I had closed the vents to drop the temp, I checked to see if I still had fire in the coals before I put on the meat. I put the meat on and the temp dropped to 250. With the vents at the previously mentioned settings, the temp appeared to stabilize at 230. I checked this several times before bedtime and thought I was OK. This morning when I checked, the fire had gone out. The egg temp was still about 130 and the meat was 110. I restarted the fire and continued to cook. Since the fire went out, will the meat be safe to eat?
