WOW, sorry. I cook full packs of thick cut bacon on my 700 all the time. I use the grilling mats from RTQ. I cook them at 375° for 12 to 17 minutes depending on crispness desired. I always scrape the drip tray before these type cooks. I have never had a grease fire in over five years now. Give it another try. The Recteq cooks' bacon the best.I’ve been very careful to keep clean foil, clean grates, and clean sear plates in my RT-700. Last night I was cooking eight bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs along with mixed vegies marinated in Italian dressing.
I had the temp set to 395, and as everything reached the desired internal temperatures, I opened the Bull and had an instantaneous grease fire that just about singed my face.
Any suggestions about what caused it and how to avoid a repeat would be greatly appreciated.
