It was packed very well! I've never used a lump charcoal unit before. When I cured it, one adjustment and it was 350 on the nose.
My first cook was a 13 pound brisket and four butts. I used cherry and hickory chunks! OMG the difference in the bark and flavor was amazing! Chris and the folks at Good One were great to deal with and answered all my questions! Very very happy with this unit after being very nervous about using a charcoal unit before.
