So I'm trying to target 225F, with a range of 210F - 240F. This would be "in a perfectly world" IMO.
My MES does a pretty good job of maintaining that range. The 30F diffs is nearly the exact range, give or take 1F - 3F. However, it doesnt always split the range into +- 15F each way. This morning it was doing -18F and +12F around 225F (so a 30F variation, just not evenly split).
It sounds like I'm obsessing I know, but like most of you, I'm just trying to perfect my new hobby!
The bummer is my MES only allows for +-5F increment changes, so for the most part, I was underrunning and overrunning this perfect world range by a few degrees.
In short, would you guys rather go with a high of 243F throughout a cook or a low of 207F. I read that temps above 250F are a no-no so I'm inclined to lean towards lower temps (even if the cook takes longer). Thanks.
