Fire in the hole...
I fired up the pit and I was pleased by how she acted.
The only thing I didn't like was... I'm exposed to Mother Nature's misfortune and temperament and she showed me her butt by raining on my parade.
That... put me behind by at least 2 hours on cooking. That will not cut it in a competition.
The pit will be good for bulk cooks in decent weather, but if it rains...I'm screwed.
Some major work will have to be done to the trailer to cover this cooker up, or I might have to go a different route altogether for competition.
Everything turned out great...but by competition standards, I would not have made the turn in times...
And that...is not good.
Cooking is like therapy, it keeps me from doing dishes...
