  1. First cook with the Tip Top Temp on my Akorn Kamado. Smoked a pork loin to perfection this morning. Have a pork butt on now (less the apple wood chunks) In prior cooks on both a vertical smoker and on the kamado, temp would sour when the wood chunks for smoking would catch. Now with the Tip Top Temp, it closes the damper until the temporary spike subsides, then opens back up to maintain constant temp. Before the Tip Top Temp those adjustments were manual and much more tedious!
  2. Grill = Akorn. Temp control by TipTopTemp. No leaks. Probes = Thermoworks Smoke and Thermopen MK4. I've confirmed that the probes are accurate, and there was no obstructions on the pit probe. Put on a 16lb Packer (probably a few pounds less after trimming) at midnight. According to the Smoke's graphs, the pit temp held between 215-235 all night. The brisket hit the stall after only 3 hours of cooking, so IT of 160 by 3AM. When I woke up to make some pit adjustments (it jumped to around 250 at 6AM, probably when the sun came up and the TTT compensated for change in
  3. Hi all, I know there is another post for the tiptoptemp. But I thought this was more appropriate in the vision forum. For those of you who don't know, the tiptoptemp is a temperature controller that sits on your vent top. It controls the temp by opening and closing a flap. When the heat rises, the flap closes. When it gets cooler the flap opens depending how how you set it. It's a good alternative to the more expensive auto temperature controllers, which I didn't want to spend money on. The TTT needs a bit of modification since it's too small for the pro s vent. I used an 8 inch to 5 inch ven
  4. Hi Everyone, Was hoping you may be able to give me some pointers. I recently order a "tip top temp" temperature controller for my Kamado Company K5 smoker. My first question is - has anyone ever modified one of these to fit a k5? The only post I found online involved drilling in to the cement which I would hope to avoid if possible. My second question pertains to lighting. In doing some research I found that most folks that use this temp controller avoid lighting all briquettes in an effort to avoid over shooting the targeted temp. Wouldn't your food taste like briquettes then? Any adv
  5. Current Mods: Tip Top Temp This mod is fairly straight forward. I used the plate hangers that are found at either Homedepot or Lowes to mount the Tip Top Temp (TTT) on the top of the vent. Double Colander for Coal Dust I double up on colanders of two different sizes so that I can put my coal inside the colander and then the colander allows the coals to breathe but also catches all the dust. My first cook I used a single colander and then I shook it by accident when removing the remains and coal dust went everywhere. Lesson learned and I doubled u
  6. Hey guys, I need some advice. I've done a number of low and slow cooks on my Akorn now (mostly ribs). I've gotten pretty much everything down but one thing: consistent and good smoke. Here is my setup for ribs: I use 100% lump piled up below the tabs. I leave a hole in the middle for lighting and mix hickory and apple chunks in with the lump around the hole. I'll also add a couple on top of the fire before I put on the smoking stone and grate. I start the fire and after the flames die down and a few coals are lit, I'll close the lid and let the TTT start regulating airflow. I usual
  7. I got a TipTopTemp recently and with the excellent mods posted I have it attached to the Acorn. Since the top opens and closes automatically I am not too sure what the best method is to establish a stable temp of 225 or another temperature. I kinda used the same method as before and did the volcano method and brought it up to 250 really slow on my last cook, and I was able to dial it in pretty good. I was smoking some ribs and I piggy backed on this smoke with a butt for the next day, and in the process of opening the lid etc the temperature got away from me a bit. (260-275) and I was wanting
  8. Hey guys! First of all: this is an awesome forum! A lot of valuable information on here So about a week ago I somehow came across this product called 'TipTopTemp' (http://tiptoptemp.com), and a week later I still haven't decided if I'm going to buy it or not. It seems pretty cool to have, but does it work well? I own a Weber One-Touch Original Kettle. The TipTopTemp should work on it. So do you guys think it is worth the $30? Please let me know!
