    I suspect that BGE uses comments on this forum to make decisions about future product offerings or to gauge satisfaction levels with current products. If they are objective, this kind of information could be useful to them.  If you like other products better, say so.

    One way I've found to bring the temp down quickly is to throw more lump on. It smothers the fire.
    Seems like this step would introduce some nasty smoke, at least until the point in time when the fresh lump gets burned in?  Not sure this would speed up the process of coverting from a high "cooking" temp to a clean burning low-n- slow "cooking" temp.   I could be wrong. 
  • Re: Lowering the temperature of the egg

    I'm not sure how it's "possible with practice" without intervention.

    The fastest way would be to use a Kick Ash Basket so you could remove the hot lump, open the egg up to cool down the outer ceramics, and at some point add back your hot lump and a cool platesetter to achieve a lower cooking temp.   This would be a pain in the butt.

  • Re: Mini or Minimax ?

    You should look at a Kamado Joe Jr before you make your decision.
