Kettle question

Postby JustinCouch » Sun Jan 21, 2018 6:11 pm

Let me ask all you kettle heads a question? At what angle do you leave your lids? I have been purring my temp gouge and vents at a 90 degree angle to my fire. You know . the exhaust is half way between the meat and fire. Am I doing right?

Are you asking because you are trying to use the gauge?

In my opinion the gauge on a kettle is worthless because it’s in the top of the dome and you need grate temps.

When I cook indirect or use the slow and Sear I put the fire on one side and the vents on the other so it draws the smoke across the meat.

Hope this helps.
