Hot Egg Rib Rescue Question

edited 2:54PM in EggHead Forum
Well, trying to follow the 3-1.5-1 recipe and my Egg just got out of control temp wise when I opened it up to foil the ribs. Im up to 380. I have it all shut down but its still hot I am afraid to open it cause it will probably get hotter. Should reduce cooking time now or what? currently running at 383. Help I got six nice racks on there getting too hot!!!

    cpbatl,[p]I think your best bet is to foil them and put them in the oven. If you can get it to settle back down to 250 or so you could do the "finish" back on the egg.[p]JNK

    cpbatl,[p]Had that problem on occasion. In the future you might shut down the lower vent when you open the dome for any length of time to prevent too much air flow -- it can still get away from you but this can help. [p]To hasten the cool down you can shut down the bottom vent and leave the top vent just cracked to let some heat out. Also pop the dome every once in a while helps. You aren't trying to extinquish the coals so they need just a touch of air. Needless to say, burping the top (a quick short open and close) will help prevent flashback.

    Open up the foil take the end of the bone and give it a little twist - not too hard - but hard enough to see if the bone will twist out easily. If you feel the bone would come out easily then take the foil off and finish them on the grill.

  • JNK,
    try to put in pan with cover foil with 1 cup liquid and let simmer on low heat

  • cpbatl,[p]Anyone ever try misting the inside (or maybe even the outside) of the egg to cool it off. I know it would take more than a couple squirts. Would it take so much that you'd risk thermal shock and break something?
