I was fortunate to get an original of the Kamado Smoker BBQ Cookbook, from Pachinko Palace Inc. with the Pot (The same one you have pictured).
I plan on leaving it black for the time being - I need to learn how to use it before I go any further. I've had Weber kettles forever..... this is something new. Recipes and tips for ribs would be appreciated.
