Might have to let the ribs cook a little longer....
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:16:10 pm »
I can't get the Bradley over 200 deg today. Might have to cook the ribs a little longer in the second stage of the 3-2-1 prootcol. Might have to go 3-3-1 or something  :-\

You can always go to the house oven.  No worries!  You gots to learn to relax.  As our good friend CRG says "you can't hurt it, it's already dead." ;)

I closed the damper all the way and it climbed to 220. When I opened the damper the temp went down.

DON'T close the damper!  The moisture needs to escape.

You're ok at 220. Don't open the door. Open the vent.

It seem you are maintaining good heat with your vent setting. At 1/4 open just check the area where the generator enters the cabinet. If you see smoke backing out of the generator open the vent a little more until there is no longer any backup.

                   inhale.

I never fool with my vent. first ribs I did I di a whole load. Couldn't get the cabinet up to temp for nothing. Ended up having to open vent all the way. Worked great and I haven't had a reason to close yet.
