I have a Cobb Premier BBQ with most of the add ons.
Last night I attempted to roast a 3kg chicken using  cobblestone but was unable to get the oven temperature above 105 degrees C. After about an hour and half the temperature started to fall and at 70"C I added another cobblestone and this raised the temperature back to about 105"C again.
I removed the chicken from the BBQ when the internal meat temperature reached 74"C.
The chicken was stil very pink and I ended up placing it in the microwave before it could be served.
Please help with some advise if possible. I use the Weber grill 2 temperature probes to monitor the temperature.
I also had to use the extension because of the size of the chicken

Hi Dan welcome to the forum

Ive never used cobblestones.
Only ever used hotshots in a Cobb.
Not sure what you need to do to improve your cook.

Hi Dan.
From my experience with fire/heat, I would suggest your fuel is not getting a sufficient air flow to create a combustion rate adequate to generate the cooking temperature you require.
Is it possible that the "cobblestones" are choking some of the air ingress vents? After after fully lit, is the fuel glowing (burning) all over?
I have no experience with the Cobb cooker, but people I know who use them frequently have nothing but good words to say about them.
Maybe a bit of experimenting with different fuel types required, good luck anyway.  Smiley
