The door really isn't necessary. I found that out later. I only open it when I really need to crank up the heat quickly and most of the time Ihave to prop somethign against it to make sure it stays closed tight. I've learned a lot and my next one will be better.
I currently have six holes around the bottom and 4 holes around the top. I leave the holes at the top open during a cook and usually two holes at the bottom are open to give me steady 225-230 temps. I plug them with aluminum foil since the guy that made it just burned the holes in instead of drilling them and making them circular.
Wait! Bigmista wrote a cookbook?
Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering
to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, a food offering presented to the LORD.
God loves BBQ!
