Sorry if I have gone off topic.
I thought the thread is about "Low and slow...the myth." and BTW, I have not said one is better than the other.
No need to be sorry and hopefully you did not get your feathers ruffled, this has been an interesting topic, I however am sorry if I wasn't clear, I was simply stating that I felt your post did not apply to the specific conversation about the ribs and I also was not saying one is better than the other.
I also felt I was getting off topic as well but everything posted so far has been on topic as far as I can tell.
My whole point to my posts have been there is more than one way to skin a cat and I am sure a lot of folks are screaming Blaspheme!
But since you brought it up please elaborate on the statement.
Again, keeping in mind that once 212F is reached, no amount of heat can get it any higher, you can go to 1000F air temperature and it will make no difference.
Go boil a pot of water and measure the temperature. Once the water starts to boil, it make no difference how high or low the fire is, it will always be 212F.
I am sure this is confusing folks it sure is confusing me and needs more explanation, I understand the concept but do not know how to apply it to our general discussion, and don't see any relevance, sorry never went to college.lol
How does this apply to, lets say 2 pork butts the same weight, mass, size etc... lets call them identical twins.
Twin#1 is cooked at 325°
Twin#2 is cooked at 225°
From your above statement you are saying that the internal temp will never get above 212 (I am assuming as long as moisture is present) ok we got that but how does it apply to the twins, my understanding is that the IT will get up to temp much quicker on twin#1 than twin#2 so what is the relevance?
I want to emphasize that I am not being facetious just curious
