I cooked some chicken quarters, a whole chicken and a rack of ribs just to test her out. All came out good and I'll post some Q-view soon. I had fits keeping the temp up though. I finally had to turn the propane back on. I struggled and finally got it to about 270*. Then it dropped a lot and it was hard to get back again. The winds were really tough. I'm hoping that Tropical Storm Fay's winds were my problem.
