Hello,

I purchased my Keg last year after an exhaustive search.  I have spent less time deciding on car purchases.  the Napoleon gasser now sits forlorn in the patio corner, just taking up space. Completed my second low and slow yesterday (ribs) and thanks to all the information on this forum I was able to maintain 220's relatively easily for 6 hours, even on a blustery day.  I was a little skeptical by the claims that moving the vent in absurdly small increments would impact temps substantially, but, obviously my skepticism was unwarranted.   I have a TTT on order, but now I wonder if I even need it. 


Again, thanks for all your help

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

TTT is a very nice product to keep your grill at a steady temp. Mine works great!

Sorry I am late to the party! Welcome to you, you'll find the folks here to be a good group of keggers with a lot of knowledge. What are you looking for help on> Ribs or Pizza or both?

The pizza, but I forgot to check the replies.   I tried it two nights ago.  My wife made the dough.   Used eggplant from the garden along with some blue cheese.  Topped with some arugula.  Turned out really well.  The keg was at 700+ and the pizza was in for less than 3 minutes.  quite satisfactory.

Made ribs again yesterday, somewhat less satisfactory.   I thought all was well.  The Maverick was reading pretty much where i wanted it.  Went out later and something did not seem right.  Opened it up and the fire was out.  The maverick was still reading 235, or something thereabouts.

Brought the ribs in, wrapped them in tin foil and put them into the oven for a couple of hours.  Edible, but not nearly as good as my first effort.


the maverick, sitting on my dining table, was still reading in the 200's.  It was hot yesterday, but not that hot.  Anyone else have this kind of problem with the maverick (732)?

I've had problems with the probes on my maverick.  but not reading a wrong temp, just giving an error.

I do now.  ordered and received a new probe, but it is too muggy for me to much interested in firing up a large fire.

Hey Keith, nice to meet you. We have all experienced fire problems. Less and less as you gain knowledge. Lots of subtleties going on. Enjoy the great stuff on your keg.

 WELCOME Khammitte.  Is it possible given the heat the Keg just hadn't cooled down and the maverick was working as it should?  I have a 732 and it's pretty reliable.  It's not hard to snuff a fire especially when starting out try to stay on the low end.  The TTT will be an asset for you I'm sure.
