Built this Labor Day weekend and did my first cook on it last Friday (naked fatty). I still need to add the long bolt to the bottom vent control as I burnt the crap out of my finger trying to adjust it.
I pulled the fatty around 1-1/2 hours in and let it go to see how long it would burn for but the rains came and things got ugly. Before that though, I got a steady 240-260 for about 4 hours. There was still quite a few briqs left.
The end result...
Tasted great! Had it for breakfast a couple of time. I think I'm going to try corned beef on it next weekend.
