  • Re: REPLACING MY FELT GASKET FO RTHE FIRST TIME....

    @Skiddymarker - I respect your decision not to use a Rutland.  Everyone needs to do their own research and then make a decision they feel comfortable with.  My comment on acetone was more geared toward meaning it was unnecessary to use acetone (paint stripper much easier), more than I don't want chemicals soaking into the ceramic.  I'm glad we all have different ways of doing things or this forum would be mighty boring.  Cook on my friend!!

  • Re: Cook advice

    Personally, I wouldn't bother with the 450º/300º thing.  I'd bring my egg up to 350º and hold it steady there.  I did (2) 9 pounders a few weeks ago at 350º and they reached 195º internal meat temp in 5.5 hours, perfect for pulling.  If you only go to 185º internal for slicing as the recipe calls for, you're probably only talking 5 hours total @ 350º.

    Sunset.  I can't even imagine being up early enough to see a sunrise.  My drinking habit wouldn't allow it...

  • Re: Brisket temps

     Got my dome on 250 since the beginning and after two hours my probe is reading 120 already...is that normal?  I know it sits in the plateau around 170 or so for a long time but just wanting to make sure it's not going too fast.

    You're good, it goes up fast and then takes forever.  160 something to 180 or so will be VERY slow.

  • Re: replacement gasket for XL

    I love the Rutland.  Replaced mine years ago and it's still going strong.  Find RRP on this forum, he'll help you out.  Get some Permatex Ultra Copper (auto supply store) to secure it on.
