actually I did a test burn the other day after I brought it home. With the firebox underneath like that, I was not sure what to expect. I have a stickburner so I know fire management so that helps.
There is a market by me that has pre marinaded 1/2 turkey breasts ready to go, I make them every few weeks on my OTS. I was planning on grilling one the night I brough the new pit home, so I got it on the Weber then started playing with the new pit.
I got it up to about 300 in no time, it was running real well so i thought what the heck, throw the bird on
It came out real good. I used a water pan for a heat deflector, the heat outlet is right below it, a 4 x 4 in hole
Lot to learn about this pit, but i think it will work fine. I plan on taking it to me cabin once I get it all figured out
