Seasoned this bad boy up before going to work today and just got home and have it waiting for the charcoal to get the chamber up to temp. I'm shooting for 250 but only lit 10 coals and have it going from edge. Using apple and cherry wood. First time doing an overnight one so we shall see how it goes. For 7 dollars it was worth a try. Originally I planned on doing PP for a local beer festival my wife and I are going to with my childhood best friend and his family but found out they don't allow grills or any heat source to bring up to temp. I am pretty sure I will be able to keep it warm in a cooler if I do still decide to do the PP for it otherwise it's cheese and sausage. I'm going to set my alarm for 4 to check in it since my Damm maverick won't work. Transponder is good but the main unit won't allow me to set temperature or anything. So it will be baby sitting with personal alarm clock and hope the wife sleeps tthru it.
