My new BBQ toy has arrived- BIG RED! Thanks to lots of folks here posting about these cookers and the recent sale at Amazon, I decided to pick one up and see what all the hub bub is. My UDS is usually my go-to, but I wanted something that was insulated and had cast iron grates and could also do high heat for pizza etc. Have to say I'm impressed with the construction of this thing. Seems to be really well made and sturdy and should last a long time. Assembly was very easy and everything fit together well. I seasoned her up last night with some lard, yep real
, and now she's ready to go with a nice shiny grey/black color on the grate. Now to decide what will be the first item cooked on Big Red.... Any suggestions?
