Had a bunch of requests for some PP so it's time to see how thus thing cooks with a load. I have 6 8 to 10 lbers decided to try come Pure Pork Powder on two of them and had some leftover Perk up your Pork for the rub. Got the pit up to 245 and git them in. Due to the rack spacing the top rack just barley fists the smallest of them. They barley clear the top 6lbers would work better up there. The larger ones fit easily on the next shelf 3 per shelf I'd no problem. I would bet I am going to need to bring the top ones down and put a rack on top of the water pan to finish them off. So first impressions 6 butts no problem just be aware of spacing and sizes on the top rack. Also it's struggling a bit to get back up to temp it may better to get it up to 275ish and then add the meat we will see exactly how long it takes to come back up. Stay tuned.

Ok it is definitely struggling to get over 225 the initial start up burned enough coal to hinder its recovery added some more coallooking better . I think with a full load a Guru would greatly help.

Looks like part of the problem was me I put an entire Mojo Cherry brick in the middle of the fire pan and it ended up cutting the fire off to the back of the fire pan:tsk:. Going better now with this load almost 60lbs it needs a good coal base but back on track now.
