Got my drum good and seasoned. Did a test burn Friday night. Temp wasn't the easiest to control. I think mostly due to some air leak issues. I installed a rope seal on the lid and also siliconed the intake vent. I hope to put a butt on it tonight around 12. Dove season comes in tomorrow and I hope to have it done mid morning so I can let it rest a few hours before lunch. Wish me luck!
