Its funny I find that I am cooking more and more things between 250 and 275....Things I used to cook at 225 like ribs I've bumped to 250 and tenderloins that I cooked at 300 Im going to 260-275.

chicken I started at 350 and am down to 300....

On roasts I used to sear ALWAYS. Last few times I havent and have enjoyed the smoke and texture of just letting it go...

What about you?

I have raised the temps I cook ribs at from 200 to 275

275 is the magic number on the MAK, lots of smoke with just the right amount of heat! I have been cooking Turkeys at this temp with great success.
