I'm using a DigiQ with spare ribs right now. I placed the temperature probe at grid level toards the front of the egg. It has held the temperature dead on for 3 hours.
In feeling the outside of the egg on a low/slow cook, I notice that the front of the egg is somewhat warmer than the back of the egg.
Even though the temperature on the DigiQ is rock stable at 225, the BGE dome temp is around 190. Hmmm. Just for fun, I moved the DigiQ pitt probe to the rear side of the grid. It adjusted and has maintained the temp again at 225. Now the dome temp is reading almost the same!
To this point, I think some of my cooks have been a bit slow. I'm thinking about monitoring the cooking temp towards the rear of the grid for the next few cooks to see how all turns out.
Should I rotate my plate setter so that a leg is lined up with the bottom vent? I think I'm getting a lot of heat from the front of the egg?!
