Default fired up my spicewine last night for the first time!

No pics, I know, didnt happen. But I fired up my new to me large spicewine last night and the things a BEAST!!! I chimney of lit coals to get it warmed, when they burned down I shoveled them off to the side and made about a 10" wide line of coals across the bottom, chunks of peach mixed in. Up to temp in about 45 minutes. left the stacks wide open, and basically closed down the bottom vents, it cruised along slowly creeping up to almost 300. I closed the stacks down to about half way, and let her run till the fire burnt out. I'd guess I got a good 8 hours out of her before the coals died out. Next time I think i'm going to go with briquettes, it really seemed to fly thru the lump.

are the maze baskets still available? definitely thinking a guru is a necessity to let it run unattended. Any other suggestions, lets hear them.
