Just got my first BGE(L) on Saturday afternoon and fired up some ribeyes. Overall, they came out great, with a perfect sear and doneness. Got adventurous last night.
Put two flats on at 10:00 p.m. last night. Watched fire until 1:30, took nap till 3:30 and checked fire, took another nap until 6:20. The fire was a perfect 250 throughout until the 6:20 viewing. It had dropped to about 195. The internal temp is 167.
I raised the lid for the first time at 6:30 since putting them on last night. Thought maybe the fire had gone out or something. It still looked to be burning slightly. I closed the lid and opened the vents all the way. It is smoking a lot, but the temp is slow in getting past 200. After 20 minutes, it's approaching 220 now.
Looking better now and the internal temp has climbed to 170. Took me a while to get logged on correctly and in the meantime the brisket is looking great.
