After three weeks of reading and gathering materials I finished my first build two nights ago. I couldn't wait to see somek rising from her so I fired her up at midnight under a rare blue moon. She held 250 degrees for a solid 11 1/2 hours on 8lbs of kings ford. All I need to do now is decide what to cook first
I should probably paint the thing before all my grinding work is erased by the fine rust patina I read about here so may times! Thanks to all who contributed to my education!
