It is important to follow the easy lighting instructions. When the cooker is lit correctly, it operates at the correct temperature for the entire cook.
We highly recommend the use of a digital instant read thermometer, such as the Javelin Instant Read Thermometer, to check the internal temp of food for doneness. This quickly ensures perfectly cooked food to your preferred level of doneness (e.g. rare vs. well done).
