What are some great cooks to use it for? I see a lot of talk on here about them, but I need some direction as to what to cook.

    Start with something easy first. I did just burgers and dogs as my first cook. Next I did ribs. They were fantastic. I have done wings as well. I did them indirect. I have not done a brisket yet. I will attempt that this year.

    Beef stew is always a good choice...


    Everybody knows there’s three acceptable condiments for a hot dog; there’s mustard, onions and stagnant cart water! That’s IT!   ... Jon Stewart

    Check the recipe section for 'Dutch Oven Pot Roast' or 'clays pulled beef BBQ'. I've also baked bread like the various no knead breads that are around.
