Bigcuts Posted March 6, 2022 Share Posted March 6, 2022 Hoping someone can help! So I used my ProQ frontier for the first time yesterday - relatively successful cook of a 2kg pork shoulder and belly ribs. Some issues I had which I’m hoping someone can help with: 1. I used water and after reading many posts on the forum, think I should be using sand instead. Roughly how much should I use? 2. I struggled to get the heat beyond 95 at the latter part of the cook and I think this is how I added Proq cocoshell cubes. After using the minion method, is there an efficient way of topping up? The door is quite small and I didn’t want to take the stackers off to avoid heat loss. It was quite difficult to add and I just couldn’t raise the temp. All vents were open as well. It was a bit windy and shielded as best I could. 3. I bought a digital meat probe (leave in) which registered well until around 70 degrees but didn’t change for some time. As we needed to eat I took it out to put in the oven to finish off but when I used an ‘analogue’ thermometer it registered the same temp. Reinserted a different digital and it read 90! If anyone can help it would be much appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
