Hey folks. First cook with my new Highland yesterday. Everything seemed to go well temp wise. New set of thermometers (tested). Baffle plate installed. Had about 20 difference from side to side still. My general plan was.
Tri Tip - 225 - 240 degrees approx 2 hours. internal temp 135 degrees
Ribs - 225 - 240 degrees approx 6 hours. internal temp 180 degrees
Turkey Breast - 240 degrees approx 4 hours. internal temp 165 degrees
I don't have a digital probe type thermometer yet and it probably would have save my butt (and my meat) if I did. Everything was over cooked and rubbery. Average temp was 225-250 (left side) 260-280 (right side) so i thought from what I read that grate temp would be about right.
WOW! What a total fail! I've done a lot of quein' in my life and done some not so good cooks before but this was off the charts BAD!
