If I am reading / interpreting this correctly you would allow the charcoal to light and get up to searing coals with the lid open so that the Kamado shell does not conduct to much heat initially

Suppose I could light in chimmey (if I had one) and then follow the Dwell technique

Thanks for the great advice as you always provide

Glenn
Yep, light your kamado as you would to sear a steak, but don't shut the lid. Let the fire get rocking up to where it would be for a 400C steak, close the lid with the vents open for maybe two minutes (less for a Keg) to build up some heat, but not the full heat soak the ceramic normally has, put the food in and shut the vents down to the target temperature.

It's the heat of the charcoal that you use for the shock on the food, then the cool Kamado will take on the heat from the choked down fire and settle at your target temp.

I'll document my cook and post the Dwelling technique in the Kamado section.

And Golly, you can do a similar thing by stacking your heat beads in the smokenator and putting a Weber basket of hot charcoal in the other side. drop a couple of bits of charcoal into the Smokenator to start the beads, and start cooking. The kettle will start hot but when the charcoal burns out in the first hout the smokenator low and slow will take over....Maybe I shouldn't have given that tip away.....before the Kettle V Kamado comp....the Kettle Boy might be listening!

Cheers

Bump!

Bought a couple of these from Eurostyle at the stock road markets.

Could I brine them, then dry them out and use the method you described above, but in a kettle?

Get it quite hot then drop the temps back? What internal temp should I be looking for?

Lach, Knuckles shouldn't need brinning there should be so much fat in them (yes dear i am whatching my cholesterol :roll: ) they will stay moist the whole cook, last weekend i steamed mine meat up on foil balls in foil tray pepsi & water - double foil wrapped for 4 hrs then uncovered and crisped for an hour more meat was fall apart tender.

Didn't cook to temp cooked till the felt & looked right, hope that is of help.
