Here's the finished product. Got a good smoke ring and some good ribs.
It is very cold here in Boston and the air is very this so I closed the vent to dial down my temps. Total cook time was 3 hours. Next time I might kick the temp down a tiny bit more.
My impression after 2 cooks is that this is a great little cooker. You will learn quickly that you need WAY LESS fuel than you think. I lit about 20 coals in my chimney and 1/2 basket of briq's and the pits been chugging along at 275 for 5 hours with no signs of slowing down (wish I had more meat to cook).
IMO, I will definitely be adjusting the intake because I don't see myself cooking all different meats at the same temp. It's been proven that you CAN do this, but my personal preference is different on this.
However, whatever temp i picked, I can walk away for hours and the temp did not budge!
