Keep in mind that altitude plays a part in how long it takes to cook as well.
Alesia, altitude was one of the first things I figured out after moving up here. It really does play into how things are going to work or not work on any given day when you factor in the rapid weather changes we can run into also. I really think that the altitude also has an affect on how long the fuel burns also. I did better this last weekend on fuel but still had to add some coals about 6 hours in as all of my wood and coals had burned almost all the way down.

Yes it rested but probably not as long as it should have. People were hungry! :)
