Well, the dry run so far is running pretty crappy. Sadly the only fuel I have is Kingsford Hickory Charcoal Briquets and I don't trust them more than I could throw them (hence me using them as a dry run). I topped off again at 175F, but I'm dry running on my screened in porch, with little to no air (wind) flow.
So, I Macgyver'd it up and brought out a box fan and set it on low on the FSB side, about 10' away. Temp went up to 200F, which I am happy with. It's been about 3 hours now, and I don't see anything close to the 220F mark though.
I'm not against modding a intake fan on the side of this rig, but really?
Sunday I'll take some Q-View photos of what I plan is a BB, Chicken, and maybe a Brisket.
