I just welded up a "Minion Box" for my Meadow Creek SQ36. Solid 11 gauge walls with a mesh bottom 12" X 12" X 8" high (in a maze type Minion pattern). I packed the bottom with beer can size pecan, filled to top (5") with Kingsford and started one end. It smoldered and had a messy charcoal smelling smoke for a couple hours until the briquettes were fully ignited across the top. Then burned great w/ very thin, pure pecan burning smell for almost 4 hours. Excellent temperature control (best I've had).

This weekend I will pack the bottom with beer can size pecan as before however, I will then pour already started hot briquettes over the top of the pecan and hopefully bypass the smoldering period and get right to cooking... Yet to follow.
