Is it safe for a pressure canner weight to jiggle continuously?
I made some nice chicken stock on my wood stove and then I thought I'd try canning it on the wood stove too since the stove already running all day long anyway. I stoked the fire good and hot and was able to get my weighted pressure canner jiggling continuously at 15lbs. I didn't have a good way to reduce the heat and I didn't want it too cool and jiggle less often than recommended so I just kept it jiggling continuously. Is there any danger in this? As long as it keeps venting it should stay at 15lbs right? Or is it possible that the canner might get so hot that it couldn't vent fast enough and then the pressure would creep higher?
I did 4 quarts of chicken stock for 25 minutes at 15lbs using a 12qt Mirro weighted-gauge pressure canner which has a overpressure safety plug. (My altitude is over 1000ft.)
