Good to see you up and running and look forward to seeing some great Qing.
Yeah thought so! What's going, on surely they should all be the same? No response from Darren @ ABBQ as yet
Ran the GMG again last night this time with 2 spatchcocked chickens and it performed well enough, it did all the right things and the smell was amazing! I set the rig to 120 but it kept bouncing between 122 to 123, is that normal (it was raining a little but I was under cover)? Cooked for 3.5 hours watching internal temp rise but I made a rookie mistake! Near the end of the cook the IT temp was stalling so I put the heat up to 130 and then 150 for the last half hour but didn't foil tent the chickens so they ended up a little dirty. They would have also benefitted from 15 minutes in a hot grill to crisp the skin but we were starving so we tucked in at 10 pm last night. Flavour was good and they were tender but the skin was crap which unfortunately was where the Smokey flavour was.
Thanks Wade followed your instruction but obviously not to the letter, just me being impatient
Just an update, had the call from Darren at ABBQ and no the controller shouldn't move in 5 degree increments just 1's so another one is winging its way to me. He also confirmed that fluctuations 5 degrees either side of the set temp is normal. Give him his due he has asked for the old one back so he can investigate
By way of an apology they are sending me a full GMG care kit with all of the bits that could go wrong in future so again great customer service He did say that the items do come to him in a box so they have no way of confirming function, so I think Darren is tearing his hair out at times too.
Hi Steve/Wade et al
Just got the 2nd new controller from Darren at ABBQ and they have sent me an upgraded WiFi unit as a sorry
They have also sent a care kit with new probe, probe door cover and low pellet alarm. So cannot fault them on their customer service it is second to none.
Just have to fit it now and play around with it but any advice or do's and don'ts on the WiFi unit jobbies?
Good news Brian. I chatted with Darren yesterday and he said he thought that he had managed to get you sorted at last
The main advice regarding the Wifi is to use it and play with the program features. They are great .
