Understanding Cooking Temperatures
The HIGH range will give an oven temperature of over 450 to 600°F (316°C), depending on the weather. This setting is used to quickly preheat your grill as well as to finish the cleaning cycles for the cooking grids and the “Arched Flame Broiler”. Could also be used as a HIGH setting In extreme cold weather conditions or if cooking with the hood open. Also can be used with the Arched Flame Broiler open to create those “Dirty or Blue” steaks as well as flame kissed vegetables.
MEDIUM TEMPERATURES 275° F TO 350° F
This range is best for baking, roasting, and finishing off that Slow Smoked creation. This range will greatly reduce the chances of a flare up, with the Arched Flame Broiler in the CLOSED position. Great range for cooking anything in bacon, or were you want control.
LOW 170°F to 250° F
The LOW setting will give an approximate oven temperature of 170 to 220°F. This setting is used to slow roast; to increase the smoke flavor; to keep foods warm; and many other savory things. Highly recommended for the BIG BIRD at Thanksgiving, Easter ham, or that huge Christmas feast. Smoking is a variation on true barbecuing and is truly the main advantage of grilling on a wood pellet grill.
There are two types of smoking: HOT SMOKING and COLD SMOKING.
HOT smoking, just another name for barbecuing is generally done at 170 to 250°F. HOT smoking works best when a longer cooking time is required, such as large cuts of meats, fish, or poultry. COLD smoking is where the food is located so far away from the fire that it smokes without cooking. Experiment with the length of time you leave for smoking, before cooking thoroughly. Some chefs, or Pit Masters as the barbecue world call them, prefer to smoke at the end of cooking and to keep the food warm.
