I have gotten my mini past 325 and held as low as 200, great cookers for either low and slow or hot and fast and very efficient with the use of fuel.

Yes, that is what I did, and it works great.

That bottom rack is for a drip pan (tinfoil pie pan).

Stainless steel dog food bowl.

Is how I roll.

An aluminum pie pan catches the drippings, and I just put a couple wadded balls of foil in the bowl.
