We hope you had a hoppy Easter and are ready to spring into warm weather cooking mode! There’s nothing better than spending time outdoors with the sweet aroma of fresh cooked Ribs. Baseball season is also underway, so it's the perfect time to try out some chicken wing variations! We have Jamaican Jerk, Lemon Pepper, Fired-Up Wings and even a Whiskey Onion and Chicken Steak if wings aren't your thing. Bon appetit!

Making pizza tonight and cleaned it out first.

So there's always post after post about not being able to get temps up. Well I always do a full clean ever couple of cooks but today wanted to post some pics if why and what I found.

The holes on the fire box the ones around the slope always get full of ash and you can just sweep around and let ash fall down and then suck or scoop out the bottom vent. But if you don't take it apart you miss all of this. I took a pic after I had already sucked some out, thought it would be a good idea. Behind my fire box I had aha built up all the way to those holes. Almost three inches high. This kills air flow and is biggest problem can't get fire up. Not the pics I really was hoping for but you'll get the idea.

    I haven't even read your thread and all I expected was another picture of your KY Jelly. Thank goodness I was wrong but still, they make pills for this stuff. :P

    These are MUCH better than the pics I was unfortunately expecting to see based off of the thread title!!   :))

    Will this thread get a serious response?  I highly doubt Mr. Focker...er I mean Mr. Cooking Nurse will based on his rep alone.  :(|) ~:>

  • Haha. I was hoping to get a good bit of views by the title alone. A method I've seen others use.

    Always take all the parts out after a burn out, and clean out the ash.

    I was going to say to get a pair or twins (mini's of course) to do a low and slow together so it can watch.
