That thing is so easy it makes you lazy. It cooks like a convection oven. Food and hickory chips go inside, charcoal goes outside, so the only thing that flavors the food is the hickory. 2 chickens took an hour and a half, 15 lb turkey is 2 hours, 5 pound Boston Butt in 3 hours.
Merry Christmas SC!!! I am heading for Missouri tomorrow am for a week plus! so excited to spend it with my mom and friends! The hubby, me & our kids celebrated today!!
