Had my butcher trim and tie a nice tenderloin. Lit up a chimney. Instead of my basket I will spread the coals on the regular grate that is in the firebox. This way I use my firebox as a grill. I really love this smoker. For my needs it's just perfect. The firebox is plenty big to use as a grill, and the main cook chamber is huge for my needs, and stays nice not having to put charcoal in it. I'll bring this up to about 110 INT then do a 4 sided sear on the firebox. Running at about 245 should take an hour or so. See you a little later with the finished product!
