The ash was choking out the fire. I had to take out the food and clean off the coals and it climbed back up to 230 pretty quickly. I was using Royal Oak.
I was thinking about using some lump, but all that is available here is Cowboy and mesquite lump. And personally, I dont like mesquite. I know you and others do.
I use the mesquite lump. i guess that might be the only time the door really comes in handy. I can reach in and shake the charcoal basket so the ash will fall without moving the grates.
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!
