Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Temperature Control Question

I was cooking a prime rib yesterday and started it at 500 degrees to get the exterior nice and brown, but when I tried to reduce the temperature to 275 for the rest of the cooking time, I couldn't do it!  I completely shut the dampers, I tired setting the dampers where I usually set them for 275 and waited 15 minutes, but it only dropped to about 400-425.  I tried shutting the bottom and opening the top to let the heat out, and everything in between, but the egg wouldn't go below 375. I gave up and put the roast in the oven in defeat.  How should I have done this?  Thanks!
