Thanks a lot "jt" I got a reply from DFLittle and he gave me the information I needed. You were a big help also. So now I know that I need a baffle (duh), extend the chimney, raise the firegrate, and stop using the minion method without a fire box. Dang maybe I need to go back to the gas grill (laughing). You guys have a blessed day, and I hope to talk with you again.
