After piddling around with this thing for 3 months, I finally got it to a point where I can start using it. There're only a few more small things to do, but I'm done with it for now. I promptly started cranking out some food with it and, damn, I'm impressed. This thing is beyond awesome. First fire-up = I hit 700* on accident. Was not expecting it to take off so quickly. Whoops.
