Did my first cook on it this afternoon. I set up the hooks for "kettle" position. I used the basket like a chimney. I laid a few pieces of crumpled newspaper in the 3" portion of the basket then poured some unlit charcoal on top. I lit the paper and let it light the coals. Worked perfect! Once the coals were going I threw the top grate on and the lid to settle the temps down. Couldn't get any pics today, but I will next time!
