Default First cook on the new Backwoods Fatboy

Okay, technically it's the second time I fired it up. I got it home yesterday and seasoned it. At the end of the seasoning cook, I put on some pig candy, a fatty, and a pan of biscuits. Then, I sat in the garage and watched the lightning, listened to the tornado sirens, and ate biscuit sandwiches.

Today, I fired it up for a meal. Nothing special, but a couple of dozen chicken drumsticks. I'm still figuring this thing out. Tomorrow, I'm gonna do a load of pork steaks and keep practicing.

Here's a shot of dinner.



Cheers,
Braddog

Here are a few more pics of the day I got it home. I'll shoot a few more as I cook on it over the next few days.


I laid it down in the back of my Yukon to get it home. I took that opportunity to install casters while it was on it's back.



Here it is as I'm getting ready to season it. You can get an idea of the height by the truck in the background.


I started a small fire for seasoning purposes. This was Stumps briquettes. It burned for about 3 hrs on this amount of fuel.


And, here you can see the commercial fire grate and ash pan.

Today, I filled the fire grate with Royal Oak lump. One bag filled it completely full. I'm running it at 250* and my goal is to see how long it runs on a full pan. I've got a load of pork steaks and ABT's to do for dinner.

If there are specific things you'd like to see in a pic, just let me know and I'd be happy to post it.

Cheers,
Braddog
