So I am now the proud owner of a Large BGE! I am practicing for a low and slow roast of a Prime Ribeye that I will be doing on Thursday.
So I fired up the egg tonight to practice getting the temp around 250, got the fire going real good, closed the dome and the temp settled around 735. I closed down the lower and upper vents and the lowest I could get the temp for the first hour was around 450. After one hour I was able to get it down to 350 and after two hours I got it down to 250. The lower vent was just barely cracked open and the upper vent had just a smidge of the holes open.
What could I have done to get the temp down faster? I really need to get a slow and steady temp on Thursday.
Also, any guesses on how ling it will be roasting a 15 lb Prime Rib Roast @ 250 to get the internal temp up to 120?
