Was planning a Chili for Halloween and the office chili cook-off. I have a 12qt DO, but it's the camp style, with legs. Anyone have experience using one of these on the BGE? I was thinking of setting it on my AR spider with the spider legs down and between the fire ring and fire box. Is that too close to the heat?
Also, I want some smokiness in the chili, do I HAVE to smoke the meat first, or will the chili itself absorb some in the process.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
