my new OK Joe's was delivered yesterday from Lowes. She is big and beautiful and heavy. Seasoned it today, sprayed with original Pam and fired it up using one Weber charcoal starter of coals and a large stick of pecan wood.Let it burn for about 4 hours getting to a high temperature of 300 degrees.Monitored temps in several places in the CC and of course they varied wildly. Using my Maverick grill level temps were 20 to 30 degree different from end to end. Temps on the stock thermometer were up to 50 degrees hotter. 

There are some problems with leaks around the lid and exhaust that I will try to fix using Permatex High temp silicone.I have done a couple of mods already . Now waiting for my convection plate to to arrive from Horizon.Debating if I should smoke something or wait for my plate.
