I'm a proud new owner of a mini. I live in a 3rd floor apartment, I cannot have a grill/smoker on my patio. The mini fits very nicely into my fireplace and has worked great there. I've had great success with steaks, ribs, chicken, tablitas, corn, potatoes...etc...granted I can't cook an awful lot at a time, but it's big enough to make just the right amount for myself and a friend or two. Sometimes I'll have to cook things up in batches to get it all done, but its ok, just a little more beer drinkin time before dinner.
My local butcher will cut me off a small chunk of brisket if I ask. Anybody have thoughts/suggestions on how to make this work?
Anybody actually done this successfully? You can only put about 1.5 lbs on there and still cook indirectly, but I'm ok with that. If I had to put 10 lbs of brisket in my freezer I wouldn't have any room left for ice cream and liquor bottles.
