No I didn't make it, I actually picked it up at a flea market for $5. It didn't get to stay on the mini though. Thought it was a little big

Test firing this eve just to see how well things work out, legs are yet to be done(just stuck some tempo ones one for today) .... Also need a chimney damper but so far do good. Wide open chimney and maybe 1/4 open on firebox and holding steady at 250. Now I'm just even more ready to be done

I might be a little superstitious brewery but next time you do a test burn like this at least throw 1 hot dog on there and eat it too - It'll be one of the worst hot dogs you'll ever love to eat.

Then you can truthfully call it a cooker - even if you still have some work left to finish ... :))

just sayin' :grillin:

Gotta love smoke flowing out of something you built! Especially when it is supposed to smoke ;) .


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.

:LG: I would season it first. Spray it with cooking spray and bring it up to 250-300 for a couple of hours, then find something to cook on it. I like to use chicken thighs for the seasoning cook! Just my way.

They say they can, I didnt notice it with mine. You can use Rick's method, too. After a couple of hours put a hot dog on, pull it and sample, if it tastes bad, let it go another hour and repeat. The funny taste will go away.

The "cake" ADDS to the meat.
If you're cooking a fattie then go for it - it will do a good job starting the "cake" (seasoned coating on the inside of the cook chamber).
All the fatties I've had were strong enough with fat and flavor you couldn't hurt them - it's the big cuts (brisket, butt, tenderloins, etc) that cook low and slow and drink in a lot of smoke that are the ones to be careful with - at least in comps.

Since it's new, you don't have any flavor to add to the meat yet.
Since it's a painted interior finish you shouldn't have any "funny" flavor at all - hopefully that's all sealed off by the paint.....
You'll do fine... especially if you share... :needfood:

OH! and :BD:

I think it might be a part of the animal that isn't openly discussed in polite company - like smoker builders... :D
