Set the egg up for 200* last night and put a pork butt on. Got up this morning and it was still at 200* Should I toss the butt?

  • If you were closer, I'd ask you to deliver to my place for quality control purposes. As this is not possible, I'd play it safe and give it Richard Parker. Better safe than sorry! :))

    @L_S-nice work without a controller or did you just grab that pic while passing thru 200*F?
    BTW-even at those temps my settings are quite a bit more open than yours.  Each BGE must have it's own air-flow characteristics...

    yeah, that is exactly how my settings look for low and slow but it's always around 250* on mine

  • Don't know why. All of my larges are the same. I vacuum out before I go overnight. Did steaks and chops last night and added lump and wood.

    Do not throw it away my friend. When i cook 20 butts or more at one time i never let the pit rise above 215. I try to keep it in the 205 zone this way you dont have to rotate meat from hot to cool zones as often and can control the texture on all of them. I dont think 5 degrees will hurt any thing at all. No one has ever complained about mine and i bet you got a winner there. Good luck and God Bless!!

  • When did BGE start including Tel Tru Thermos? Are you sure that thing is calculated? I don't think you meat is ruined (but I worry about your cerebro)
  • I put it on but they do now. Appreciate the advice Gino.
