  • I don't remember what the boiling point is in Fahrenheit but 212* comes to mind. liquid doesn't get hotter than that as I remember.

    Yeah- i think what they mean is if you have it in a pot with liquid, cook it until it is 210 and then hold that temp for an hour.  I think it would be fine if your egg was a little hotter, because the liquid won't go above 212.   I'm not saying you couldn't hold your egg at 210 dome ;)...but 225-250 will be fine too. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yeah 212F at sea level, but you don't want any more heat than you need if you can help it, because you're using the moisture in the meat evaporate to keep it cool in a hot oven.

    I don't know if I can keep mine that low without firing up the DigiQ.  No doubts though.  Easier to just put it in the oven....awwww it's only one more hour.  Yeah, just damper it down.

    Yes sir, I believe so.

    And I second your opinion of the liquid temp controlling the meats temp.
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 15,448
    Duh - pot roast is in a pot with liquid braising liquid - if that's the case, don't worry about the temp.

    Steven - I think water boils at 100C in Canada.

  • You know what. You are probably too young to remember but this was a deal between Canada and the US whereby we would both go metric. We did the deal first and there was an uproar in the American population against it. Your government listened to the will of the people (Now what kind of government does that? Certainly not a Canadian one.) and we got stuck with it. We were screwed to begin with cause we were Imperial in volume. 45 Gallon drums and all that rot.
