Makes sense. Iíll close them down a lot sooner next time and open as necessary.

Makes sense. I figured the grate temp would be less, but just not sure by how much. Iím going to look for a thermo that I can place on the grate.

Thanks.

I believe even un-modified the temps are much lower at grate level.
When I used to do pizzas on the kettle (non-grilled, over a stone) I had to elevate the pizza off the grate about 4" for the toppings to cook. Otherwise, it took forever for the toppings to cook at gate level while the bottoms of the crust were getting charred....

After pulling and saucing I baked up 3 dozen of these suckers for the Pig/Barn Herf on Saturday. Peanut butter Chocolate Chip.

May I just say, there has been some AWESOME looking food on this thread
in the past few days. Plus this forum is SOOOooooooo slow the past couple
weeks, so saying anything is a good idea. But those two chunks Mr. B posted
up were about as pretty and textbook as I have seen in 45 pages.

That's the stuff Piggly Wiggly keeps on putting in the reduced rack, but for some reason they cut them in 3/8s inch slices
and for some reason they are high priced even reduced, (for what they are). But maybe they'd sell better if they would
stop freaking slicing them.

I haven't done a catering gig for nearly a year as I have been too busy... That being said, I have one small one each of the next 2 weekends. I am kind of excited even if it will be too hot for man or beast!! Maybe I will post some pics... but knowing me I won't!!!

I invited myself and a couple of buddies over to my MIL's house last evening for an informal mini-herf so we could relax in her pool and watch the moon come up over the river. Even at 10:00 the pool felt like bathwater but it was relaxing!). I just can't get my smoker through her gate.
