Convection Oven Cooking

Recommended Posts

-We got dual Convection ovens with our new house.  Had the option on the old house oven for either conventional bake or convection.

--We always chose conventional. Not an option on the contractor installed stuff.

       I did convert my stove top to gas.

---My wife is wacked (that's a mild statement) over converting her longtime Baking recipes. Some of her stuff is super dependent on older conventional behavior-some presentation and some timing. As we know, sugary stuff is unforgiving in a quick fashion. Certain stuff has to be the right color. She does does an awesome choc. chip cooking with a just right melting of the chips. At least used to.


Me not so bad using all my Kamado cooking techniques and temp probes, when I do use the oven.

I bring this up as the traditionalists in my house are demanding an oven turkey cook-no worries , doing one on the KJ too.

So thank heaven for my old Maverick and newer Smoke so I can do a couple of in cook probes and temps in the oven itself. 


If things get rough I'll swap into at least one traditional oven if that's possible down the road.

I am curious how it works out for you.  We have one of each, the convection oven does really well with certain foods but the conventional one gets the bulk of the workout.  (perhaps because it is what we all know well)
