Doing my first burn now. So far just put it together and am testing my ability to make a charcoal fire. I had a poor $90 lowes gas grill for the past 8 years that I had to fight to do any decent grilling on and decided it was time to do it right and stuck it out by the curb. Ordered the parts to build my mini thanks to stumbling on SMF. Pretty windy today, and SWMBO wants to go out tonight so the 10lbs of meat from costco will survive another day. I plan on trying some fatties/chicken until I get it dialed in and smoke some real meat!
