Hi, I was hoping someone could tell me how I determine if I received version 2 of the iKamand. I just received it in 3/30/20 directly from KJ and used it for the first time today. I updated the software to V 1.0.54. I experienced several problems during my attempt to smoke a pork shoulder. First, three times it over shot the temp I set in the app by an average of 11%. Then the app notified me that the pork was at my target temp of 203. I then used my Therma-Pop thermometer to confirm and found that the roast was only 185 - 187 in four different areas. Obviously way off my target. All this is why I’m concerned that they shipped me version 1 of the iKamand. I would appreciate any help you all can provide. Take Care & Stay Safe! Pablo
This past weekend I attempted my first cook of baby back ribs on my new Kamado Joe Classic II. I read on this forum that the 2-2-1 cooking method was the best option but my ribs came out dry. I would say that half of my 2 slabs were too dry. I used the EasyBBQ thermometer to monitor the temperature and the rib meat got to a temp of 212 and I was able to keep grill temp between 250 to 280 degrees. What did I do wrong? Is the rib temp of 212 too high? Were my grill temps too high? Also, I did use the deflector plates to produce indirect heat. I would appreciate any feedback or tips. Thanks. SA
