It's cold 20 in Blue Springs at noon. Doing a brisket and a butt. Watching football. Took about 30 min for the Yoder to hit temp. I start the fire with lump than add wood. For the low temp outside it heated up quick and easy. Even with my super heavy duty charcoal starter. 30 min. being from the time I pulled the trigger on the propane troch to temp. The great news, I got the place all to myself. Smoking meat just outside the man cave. NFL and beer. Now thats what I call me time. J.
