I could only get my pot (outdoor on a Bayou Classis sp10, 4.5gal in a 32qt. pot) to about 210deg. and was wondering what effects a low boil temp may have in the final product. Temperature readings were from my thermometer placed on the inside edge of pot. The middle of the pot was probably higher, as the water was indeed at a low boil. I am going to resolve my heat problem, just worried about my original question. P.S. It was only about 20deg. outside.
