How to Use the Cooker Gauge – Lang Smoking Saturday Tips

Cooking temperature Control

Learn from Ben Lang how to correctly use the Lang Smoker Cooker gauge during your cooking process:

It can be easy to misinterpret your Lang BBQ Smoker external burning temperature

(which is measured by your Lang Smoker Cooker gauge) from the actual internal cooking temperature.

The external Lang Smoker Cooker gauge is a burning, and general grill temperature indicator which is structured to know  what is the burning temperature in order for you to control and stabilize it.

This gauge does not measure the actual, internal cooking temperature!

In order to tell your internal cooking temperature it is recommended to use a meat thermometer that is inserted into the thickest part of  your cooking material. By using a meat thermometer,  you will be able to learn the internal cooking temperature of your smoking grill (can go as high as double of the external burning temperature that is shown the gauge).  Cooking with a meat thermometer will help you to control the internal cooking temperature and will help you to ensure that the food is fully cooked and will help prevent over cooking. As mentioned in earlier cooking tips, on average the internal temperature for birds should be 170F to 180F and meat should be cooked to internal temperature of 140F for rare, 160F for medium and 170F for well done.

*It is important to use an internal meat thermometer in order to make sure that you will not over cook your meal!
