Why I can’t I get my egg to settle down today?? Any ideas
I just got my egg a few weeks ago so I am a complete novice
at this. So, I am sure my lack of experience is the problem. I am hoping that you
guys could point me in the right direction and share some pointers with an newbie.
This is my 2nd slow and low cook I have done on the
egg and everything the first time went fine. This time however will not stabilize
for me. I trying for 225 to 230 and I will just bump the daisy wheel like a 1/8 of an inch or less and it will start creeping very slowly in one direction. I will let
it go to about 238 or so and bump it the other way then it will start heading
down. It might take a 45 min to an hour to get down to 221. So then I adjust
again back the other way. I really am making crazy small adjustments on it wheel. This
is the first time using a grill grate probe though. Am I just trying to be too
picky trying to keep the temp within 5 degrees?
This is a large egg the daisy wheel is about 1/4 to 1/3 open and the bottom vent is about 1" or so open if that helps at all.
