Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Temperature - with top open

I understand controlling the temperatures when cooking on the Egg now.

250 - 1/8 inch on the lower vent and 1/4 on the petals of the DW.
350 - 1 inch on the lower vent and petals wide open and slid over 1/4 the way

Now my question is about WOK cooking or whatever cooking with the top open.  I know if I am cooking at 350 and I leave the top open for over a minute I will have a raging hot fire (Fire coming up the sides of the Egg).  If I am cooking on a WOK I believe I should close the bottom vent.  Will this keep the fire at a reasonable hot temperature or will it be a blazing fire?
