Ok, so i went to make baby back ribs last night. 9 hours at 165 degrees. Put them in at 1130 pm, wake up at 7 am and go check to see how they were doing. The temp gauge was set at 165, and the water temp was 195!! WTF. So i immediately took my bags out, dumped the water and refilled with cold water and a few ice packs. I guess we'll see if my ribs are falling off the bone or disintegrating when i sauce them and finish them on the grill.
But has that happened to anyone else with the temp going that high? Took the cover off, no residue on the probes that i could see and the little propeller spun freely also.
Have 2 Steaks to make for this meal later, don't really want to babysit them either.
