Picked this new toy up on Craigalist this week and had to try her out. This is my first real cook with charcoal other than a few beach cookouts. Spatchcocked and rubbed a 7.5 # roaster with a paste made of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Shooting for 400 degrees cooking temp with a little apple thrown on coals. I always spatchcock when roasting them in the oven at 400 so I played around with the vents to get it around 400. This thing is a tank. Holds temps as well as my weber gasser. Here she is about an hour in when I added a few more coals. So far so good. I'll add some pics of the final product.
