OK, that was strange.....

Doing some ribs, indirect 250 - 300, nothing special.  Cranking along just fine for an hour, then the temp dropped a little and I opened the vent a bit.  Came back 5 minutes later and it is way below 200.  I thought it had gone nuclear and wrapped around all the way, but no, it is pretty much dead.  Only time I ever killed the fire was once trying for a sustained 150.  I had this thing going at 300, and opened the vent.  It was not completely dead, but I pulled everything out, stirred the lump, and left it open until it started up again.  Smoked a lot on restart, we'll see how the ribs turn out.

  • Bad lump, 'cause we know the cook can be trusted. First fire from that bag maybe?

    Bag of?
    Green egg, dead animal and alcohol. The "Boro".. TN 
  • I almost commented without looking at who actually posted as I'm paying more attention to football right now but I would agree whole heartedly with @Skiddymarker. I'm not going out on a limb to say that Doc knows what he's doing.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
    Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

  • Ribs turned out tasty and tender as could be.  A little dry, but that will be helped with some sauce.  Going to de-rib mine like pulled pork for tomorrow's lunch.

    The Egg is a mystery we must all experience in our long journey.
