ive searched the archives, anyone have a link to a post that shows about where daisy wheel settings and door at bottom settings are for vaious temps


  • benny,
    Great question, and I hope someone does, but I think the answer is going to be something like ... "grasshopper you must toll many moons to fully understand the ways of the egg"[p]Anyway - its a great excuse to cook some things and after just a litte bit of playing with it, it should get pretty intuitive. [p]Just remember its easier to get one hot than it is to cool it down.[p]Good luck and enjoy.

    there is no such a thing...entirely to many could open the bottom more than I do and the top less and achieve the same temps.....ambient temps, type of lump used, wind...all of these affect the settings....get out there and play with it instead of expecting it to work like your oven. Not trying to sound mean....[p]Wess

    You might try to ping any users of the Micky T rings. There are those eggers who swear by these temp control rings. They were invented by a fellow egger a long, long time ago. Good luck, Tom

    benny, My large Egg has a rule of thumb and it is always on spot.
    bottom door wide open wheel open to only the small vents exposed settles at 350
    bottom door open 1/8" and the small vents about the same, settles at 250
    Understand that the Egg must come to 25 degrees below the above temp so it will settle down.

    Be one with the fire! Each cook is different, There's no sub for experience, play with it to learn what works for you!

  • benny,[p]Approximate bottom vent settings and resulting dome temps are; 1/16"= 180-210°, 1/8"= 220-250°,
    1/4"= 250-280°, 1/2"= 275-325°, 1"= 325-350°, 2"= 350-400°. Top vent settings affect regulated temp more as the cooking temp rises as more airflow is required to maintain a hotter fire. [p]This was sent to me by Spin.[p]Kelly
