Default First overnight cook

Well, today I had two firsts.

I cooked beef short ribs over around 3 1/2 hours in the WFO. Kept a nice little fire going the whole time and threw in a second pan with asparagus in the last half hour or so. They were excellent!

Second, after i swept out most of the coals, I put in a terra-cotta pot filled with cannalini beans. Soaked them overnight, and put them in with water, rendered down pancetta, peppercorns, and fresh sage. Can't wait till morning to see what I got!

Nice!
With a small live fire going were you able to maintain a certain temp range for the entire low and slow cook?

George,

I kept it at about 450-500 with a slow flame going. Just put a log on every 45 minutes or so. My beans were undercooked though! I just don't think I got enough heat in the oven to last through the night, and my door is far from insulated. Think I really gotta get the oven hot and maitain a strong burn for at least 2-3 hours before. Can use the residual heat to overnight it. And, insulate the door of course. My internal temp was 185 on the floor after 12 hours...just not high enough.
