The Biscuit Test

The Biscuit test. What you do is get a few tubes of cheap biscuits from the store, Get a fire going in the belly of the beast, and when you think you have it stable and the temp. you like (I go 275F-300) put the biscuits all over the cooking surface.(mine are usually 18 to 20 inches from the coals) Let them go for 10 min. then check them. No peeking with the lid. Till the 10 min. is up. That way you can tell if there are (and there will be) any hot spots. It's a great tool to tune a off set pit.

I heard that a couple of years ago, I think...Might have been on the Klose forum and it was to aid in tuning an offset. That is a great idea!

It is a good way to check for hot spots... too bad Cappie ran him off.

I offered Cappy help and he wanted to fight his own battles! And I must say he did a marvelous job and has made me proud!

By the way I tried the biscuit method with popcorn kernels, but it didn't work?? :biggrin: I think I found out why though...............I used a gas pit and am not a pit master (because LC said so) and I cut the head off the corn! We all know it's not real BBQ'd corn if you cut the head off. If only if I would have stuck with the "traditional" way of Q'ing I would have made perfect popcorn! Oh well! :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102 :smt102

Larry, did you put the corn on top of the biscuit or visa versa?

No Nick, I eliminated the biscuits and just tried to use the corn kernels. The kept falling through the grates and immediately incinerated. I call that the "Kernel Test", if the kernel burns that means you have fire. :smt102
