The Burn In
So I cleaned her up and soaked her with a good spay of PAM. Filled the basket about half way with Kingsford Blue. Here she is with the Deeze (aka Dumb Dumb) licking up the PAM spray off the gound.
After the coals got going I put a log of cherry on for good measure. Now she's smokin'.
I left the lid off for a bit to get her good and hot then slowed it down and now I have one cap on. Before I go to bed I'll close the ball valve half way with one cap off. Be interesting to see what is going on in the morning. Saturday I'll do some chicken for her maiden voyage. Thanks everyone here for all the input and support.
