I have not done a full degrading temp check lately because of cooking. Well... I guess that is why I am not losing any weight.

Just checked mine earlier today...160* after three days. We cooked ribs in a a large cast iron pan on day one, otherwise it would probably been higher.

I don't have one of those heat guns, this was taken with an old gauge from a gas grill.

All is well Derk, thank you for asking. I still have a tad of honey, but am thinking about doing some mead. What you you charge me for like a gallon of your wonderful honey?

Cooking in the oven sucks the heat plus opening and closing the door lowers it further. My extreme temps are only in an oven that is doored off except for when measuring the temp.

I posted this some time back but it seems relevant to this thread. Insulation matters! It was in April so the ambient temps were most likely cold.


I wanted to document my temps, when I get asked, I never remember all the numbers.

Saturday at 6:30 PM after the fire; hearth=900 deg.
Saturday at 8:00 PM after pizzas; hearth=555 deg.
Sunday at 9:00 AM hearth=447 deg. - cooked a coffee cake
Sunday at 4:30 PM hearth=374 deg. - cooked coconut shrimp
Monday at 6:30 AM hearth=288 deg.
Monday at 4:45 PM hearth=244 deg.
Tuesday at 4:45 PM hearth=170 deg.

As you can tell, we didn't do much cooking, but the oven appears to be retaining heat fairly well (I think).
