Yep, my wife insisted on having double ovens in our new house for just that reason. She can have a cake going at 350 in one and broiling something else in the other. Nice

Rick,
You are very observant! Yes I did right after I assembled the new spring assist band and replaced the old ceramic fire grate. Yes , the scoop is for the lump coal and scooping out the ash into it so I can take it to the garden and mix it in with the dirt around my fruit trees. Chicken is close to being ready and the ribs still have a ways to go. Ribs are primarily for an all day halibut fishing trip on Wednesday morning.
It's tough being a West Coast fark but someone has to do it!

Default Temperture Control

Cap,

How did you achieve the your table temp in the eggs? I recently got a LArge Egg. When I get it going I sometime have trouble maintaining the low temperture (225) when following the reccomended procedure i nthe egg literature. Additionally when I do get the fire stable and then add wood chips to the fire it takes forever for the temp to get back up to its proper level. What kind of timing/procedure are you using?

Chris

I used an old family secret. I get a scoop of wood chips to dd and then open the lid and dump them down the side on both sides and close the lid method. The egg will return itself back to the temp all by itself. The longer the door is open the longer the recovery. If you want super stable, put a Guru DigiQ or Stroker kit on your egg.
