rules for temperature control
Rules for Temperature Control
  • Hand Test
    • Place hand at top of open oven and count until too hot to keep hand there
    • Subtract 50°F for each second from 550°F
    • 5 sec would mean it is at 350°F
  • For 350°F use 2 X Diameter (in.) briquettes
    • Location depending on style of cooking but D+3 on top and D-3 on bottom is good start
    • Add or remove briquettes to adjust temperature
  • Ring of coals
    • Continuous ring of briquettes around top edge
    • Continuous ring of briquettes between legs on bottom
    • Typically total matches rule of +/-3 from above
    • Good method when using fire coals
  • Rotate every 10 to 15 min
    • Rotate oven to advance feet to next spot (1/3 revolution)
    • Move lid back to original spot

cooking tips
Cooking Tips
  • Food can cook longer but can’t un-burn
    • When in doubt use lower temperature
    • Check food while cooking and remove coals
  • For long cooking times add briquettes over burning ones to light as the first batch burns out
  • Preheat oven to Fry or Sear adding extra oil first to avoid sticking
  • Put food in cool oven and heat together to bake or stew
  • For meats cook 30 to 35 min per pound, poultry 25 to 30 min per pound
  • Vegetables cook 3 min per inch of oven diameter
  • Breads 30 to 35 min total (brown top last 5 to 8 min)
    • Bake in Al pie plate over several pebbles to avoid burning bottom
  • Don’t set the lid on the ground while cooking or you could add dirt to the meal!
  • Omelets or Pancakes? Mix in large zip lock and minimize clean up
