My labor day cook. Ended up cooking 2 racks beef, 5 full spares, ABT's, and sausages. It runs a little on the hot side it really likes to cruise at 275. What a difference between my old Char-griller. Wood stove is great for pre warming my splits. built pretty much with crap I had around. It never would have come out this well without all the great info on this site, thanks.
