Default Can I compete with an Ole Hickory SSE? or is it too big to heat up?

I just had an oh shoot moment. I have been fretting doing a KCBS comp with my SSE without gas - the fan and rotiseerie I'm cool with - but I figured lump and briquettes would be cool.

Then in the shower this morning (yes, some dream of long legged girls in the shower, I dream of BBQ), I realized I don't think there's enough charcoal on earth to EVER heat up that monster up.

Does anyone have any experience with heating up an Ole Hickory Pit SSE (it's one of the bigger ones) with charcoal?

I used to compete on a CTO and i would keep the gas hooked up and bring it up to temp that way and then the charcoal and wood didnt have as much work to do.

Brad,

Heat it up with gas but disconnect before any meat goes on. Works extremely well with my CTO, so I doubt you will have any issues.

yep, just get used to having the competition rep stop by and say something like "you are going to disconnect that propane tank before any meat goes on, right?"

Talk to the rep Friday early and tell them you'll disconnect before putting meat on.
