Well my Backwoods finally came today, and so excited to get Smokin something! Ive been using a electric for about a year and a half. I decided to fire up a tray of charcoal so I could mess with the dampers and see how the temps went up and down. I think I may have started to much in the corner because its at 250 with the dampers closed and the top vent open. its been at 250 solid for about 45 minutes. I hope I dont mess myself up this weekend when I actually start smoking. just have to watch it. Gonna start less charcoal when I smoke this weekend... Yay! So Excited. My Wife asked, "What are you gonna name her" LOL!
