Hey Folks,

 

I finally upgraded from my Acorn to a Saffire 19" Silver edition, the first cook was Spatchcock chicken coated in olive oil and magic dust dry rub, turned out great.

@hokihigh, I see you're using a Thermopro as well.  Is it working out for you?  I saw it had pretty good reviews on Amazon, and cheaped out and got one instead of a Maverick (which was $20 more for the same functions), which seems like the favored brand on this forum.  It works ok for me, but before the temperatures have stabilized much there's a LOT of swing in the readings.  Furthermore, it woke me up at 3:30 a.m. when I did my first overnight smoke, only to find the temperature was still within my desired range.

 

Thoughts?

Zero. There is both a low and high for the pit and the food probe. Sometimes it goes off because one or the other is out of range.

Congrats on new Kamado and good looking birds! Can you tell us what came with your Saffire?

Hey Garvin,

 

My Saffire came with the cart and lower grill grate, the upper grate I ordered after receiving my cooker.  I also bought a pizza stone, heater deflector, ash tool and wood chip tool at the same time.

Looks like a great dinner tonight. So do tell, what do you think of the Safire compared to the Akorn? How did the lump consumption and temp attain and retain compare?

It was a great dinner, I ate to much though:-D.  I wish I could answer those questions for you, I'll let you know as I figure it out.

That was my first time using it, I think the meat probe runs a little cold, I'm going to try to verify that...

Roger.  After this weekend's cook, I think mine ironically runs a little hot.  ThermoPro was reading 207 and an instant-read (Taylor brand?) said it was 202 or so.  Then there's the BBQ probe, which continues to be the bane of my existence.  When I woke up, it was still showing 227F, but confused to see the meat already over 200 (about 9 hours into of a 12-pound cut).  I walked outside to find the dome thermometer on my Akorn pegged about 250, which means it really was closer to 300F.  Ugh, maybe it's time to eat the cost and buy a Maverick.
