    Steak, tuna and turkey are all those egg heads cook?

    The irony lies in the final conclusion that results vary according to a host of environmental factors. I enjoyed working a lot with fire environment modelling programs, but the biggest danger with any models is the 'ol "garbage in, garbage out", or worse "garbage in, policy-making out". They can be very useful tools when used objectively, but are susceptible to reverse engineering to justify a certain outcome. Caveat emptor.

    It reminds me of a recent study by a prominent California state university that looked at the correlation of vehicle vs wildlife accidents on highways in wooded areas. Their conclusion was that you are more likely to crash into a deer or bear in a rural wooded area than anywhere else. I can't remember what they titled it, but I call it the "Duh! Study". They had nice charts and graphs too.

    I just Google the calculator it pops up as soon as I type F. Have a lot of temps converted in memory already.

    replied
    Quickie conversions
    C to F. Double C and add 30. (20C x 2 =40). 40 + 30 = 70F approximately
    F to C. Subtract 30 and divide remainder by 2 (90F - 30 = 60) 60/2 = 30C approximately

    multiplier/ divisor is actually 1.8 but 2 gets you close.

    Thermapen is still the best method. As the article mentions above. But this might be helpful in planning out cooks for the future to give you a ball park shot of how much time you need.

    "It is important to note, however, that these temperatures are estimates and not completely universal. This simulation is not a perfect model for cooking actual meat. Stove temperatures, pan types, and meat consistency are variable from case to case. Please be certain to check that your meat is thoroughly cooked before consumption unless you enjoy getting food posioning."

    Advised by: Rob Miller, Fredo Durand, Michael Brenner, and Pia Sorenson

    Developed for the 2013 edX course Science and Cooking: From Haute Cuisine to Soft Matter Science. It demonstrates the heat diffusion through meat over time. This heat diffusion is calculated by modeling the meat using the diffusion constant of water. The heat at each point in the meat is calculated at each time step by using a Crank-Nicolson scheme to solve the heat equation.

    The temperatures for the different stages of protein denaturization come from Harold McGee's On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen (pages 152 and 210). It is important to note, however, that these temperatures are estimates and not completely universal. This simulation is not a perfect model for cooking actual meat. Stove temperatures, pan types, and meat consistency are variable from case to case. Please be certain to check that your meat is thoroughly cooked before consumption unless you enjoy getting food posioning.

    Also, learned about cryo-frying, which is an insane thing I will never do, but would like to eat some day.

    They have a button you can push to get F instead of C. It is in the top right corner.

  • RonB
    replied
    That is neat, and there is a button upper right that changes temps to F. However, I can't see getting that much control of cookin' temps in any type of grill or smoker. Gas maybe, but I can't speak to gas.

    BTW - 4 cm is just over 1.5".

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

the good one grill
The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it.

PK 360 grill
The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
