  • Tim M, When do you insert the thermometer for steaks? From what I have read, anything over 350 will fry the polder.
  • Tim M, Thanks to all for the answers. I did my first this last weekend and almost got a little impatient. I hung in there through the plateau and it was great.
  • Tim M, What happens if you bump up the dome temperature during the plateau?
  • Wardster, I did a butt yesterday and it stopped for a while at 158, then jumped up to 161. It was probably between 158-161 for 3+ hours. I cooked it around 240-250, then bumped it up to 300 when polder read about 170.
  • Gfw, You mentioned stripping the membrane off your ribs. Is that necessary? What is the best way to do it? I did a couple of racks about a week ago without stripping anything and they turned out great.
