I just received this link: http://thebbqgrail.com/2012/guest-blog-post-the-minion-method-easy-low-and-slow-bbq/
"Reader’s Digest version:
Long, consistent cooking
temps, without having to regularly add coals, or otherwise babysit your
cooker. Ideal for cooking at 225-250°F for more than 6 hours."
After you elaborately fiddle with your coals in search of a 6+ hour cook, don't forget your water pan every 2-4 hours too.
I'm going to hug my BGE when I get home from work.
